Impact/Purpose:

To inform the public.

Description:

The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has determined that one of the nation’s biggest infrastructural needs is the replacement or rehabilitation of the water distribution and transmission systems. The institution of more effective pipe leak detection technology will improve the water utilities’ ability to respond to major and minor pipe leaks in a timely manner to reduce water loss and property damage, as well as to protect human and environmental health. From this research, EPA will be able to help local utilities to implement the technology necessary to pinpoint leaks in the water distribution system and reduce water loss.
