Once the water audit is completed, the results may be compared against industry-standard metrics, past water audits, or water audits completed by others. The audit results may also be used to determine actions that may be taken to reduce non-revenue water.
This section provides resources that allow you to further analyze your audit results.
The Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) announces the release of the GA Water System Audit and Water Loss Control Manual. This new manual will assist water providers in meeting the new statutory requirements outlined in the Georgia Water Stewardship Act of 2010 (SB 370/HB 1094).
This project seeks to define and guide water utilities and regulatory entities in understanding what makes an accurate and reliable water audit, following AWWA methodology for water audits. This project is structured to provide North American water utilities and regulatory entities with clear guidance and a standardized methodology for validation of water audit data.
Each year millions of gallons of water are lost to leakage, meter error, and water theft – impacting a utilities bottom line. This manual paired with AWWA’s free Water Audit Software gives you everything you need to greatly improve your water loss program.
