Leakage on a Water Supply System
It is a fact that all water supply systems leak. One challenge for water supply organisations is quantifying this. This is done for two primary reasons - firstly to locate and fix leakage, and secondly they will probably have a requirement to report their "Water Balance".
Top Down Leakage refers to one of the simple methods of calculation:
Water into supply - Known or Estimated Consumption = Leakage
Known or Estimated consumption is normally split into a number of components such as Billed Household Consumption, Billed Non Household Consumption, Unbilled Water Taken legally/illegally and Water for Operational Use.
Other approaches for quantifying leakage include: the Integrated Flow Method (the Bottom Up method), the Bursts and Background Estimate (BABE) and the Infrastructure Leakage Index (ILI).
Can someone take over, alter and upload the schematic noted at http://www.tmvw.be/userfiles/file/WATERPUNT_voor_web.pdf
I was hoping to learn about unaccounted water issues from this article, but it is not mentioned. Perhaps someone is knowledgeable about this sub-topic. Wakablogger2 (talk) 07:24, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
Merging Sustainable Development in an Urban Water Supply Network with this page
Sustainable Development in an Urban Water Supply Network is a page that has, as they say, "multiple issues". In my opinion, the best thing to do would be to move what's usable from there to a new section on this page. What do others think? Tdslk (talk) 18:02, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
- This seems like a good idea to me. The "Sustainable Development..." article is an essay, and editing it into good article style would be an Augean task. Mine it for useful information and citations, incorporate them into this article, and then delete the original article as beyond salvaging. Ammodramus (talk) 02:11, 6 January 2012 (UTC)
- Agreed - although I am uncertain whether there is much worth salvaging. Velella Velella Talk 09:42, 6 January 2012 (UTC)
What's the point of linking to the Water purification article in the intro (after the watershed statement):
- 1. The watershed the water (see water purification - sources of drinking water);
Especially since it refers to a section that no longer exists: "sources of drinking water". If no one objects I would like to remove the reference to the Water purification article. And of course I'm going to fix the strange grammatical error.
