Ovarro have consultants who specialise in Leakage & Demand consultancy services. Our team has a vast amount of experience working with water and wastewater authorities in the UK and around the world.
We can support companies in applying these guidelines for the development, implementation and maintenance of monitors, including:
We can help you with:
Our work has identified a number of ways in which alternative tariffs can support your future demand management. Using a large scale monitor, we were able to demonstrate impacts in a number of areas:
Our research has led on the development of best practice for deriving the leakage cost curves which ultimately determine costs for the active leakage control demand management option to your company.
The outputs of our analysis provide short and long-run sustainable economic levels of leakage, accounting for social and environmental costs.
Our work has included modelling, in detail, the economics of pressure management at DMA level, accounting for reductions in leakage and bursts, and the impact of pressure on customers.
Ovarro consultants are at the forefront of research to improve estimates of night-time water usage. We can integrate these with minimum night flows to derive your leakage estimates for both operational leakage targeting and water balance reporting.
Our Techniques use modern fast logging equipment and we can provide you with additional insight into the seasonal variation in night use.
Our analysis of fast logging data has improved targeting of leakage reduction activities by enhancing understanding of anomalous areas where measurement is suspect and diagnosing areas where high night flows represent genuine undetected leakage.
