The Economics of Supply Pipe Leakage

 
Price: £300  

This project has provided a methodology for assessing the most economic process for management of customer-side leakage, allowing the options for customer side leakage management to be considered alongside all other leakage management options in SELL models.

The economic policy is the least cost mix of repair / replace and the level of company contribution that results in the lowest overall sum of:

- Cost of lost water
- Cost of dealing with customers
- Cost of supply pipe repairs and / or replacements.

There are also a range of issues that can impact on both the level of supply pipe losses and the cost of the SPL policy. The frameworks allow companies to explore the impact of:

- Customer metering
- Separation of shared supplies
- Transfer of ownership.

The supplied MS Excel frameworks(s) and SELL integration module can be used to identify the economic level of supply pipe losses based on company specific information.
