Matchpoint has been awarded a second contract with Georgia Environmental Finance Authority (GEFA). GEFA pre-selected twenty-five utilities to receive leak detection services as a part of their Water Loss Control Technical Assistance Project. Under this contract, Matchpoint will perform 1,305 miles of leak detection services split amongst the selected utilities.
Georgia is the first state to mandate AWWA Annual water audit reporting that was introduced in the 2010 Georgia Water Stewardship Act. This act created quantifiable non-revenue water objectives; the services Matchpoint is contracted to perform will assist the selected GA utilities in achieving those goals.
GEFA provides financing for water infrastructure as well as for many other energy and conservation related programs.
GEFA has increased both the number of participating utilities and consequentially the miles to be surveyed in the second contract. Matchpoint was awarded an initial contract with GEFA under the same project in 2016, which consisted of 400 miles of pipe across six utilities. In total, Matchpoint located 176 leaks running at 243.1 gallons per minute. That’s a total annual savings of 127,773,360 gallons statewide once repairs are completed.
Albany Utility, a recipient of Matchpoint’s 2016 leak detection services, remarked,
“The entire Matchpoint group that I have interacted with has been as professional as I could have expected. From start to finish Matchpoint and the execution of the services they provide rate a 10 out of 10…. I would absolutely recommend Matchpoint to anyone and I hope that we can work together again in the future.”
Matchpoint is delighted to execute its services under this contract, which is due to kick off before the end of June 2017.
