Water Preservation & Conservation Services
Risk Management is a data driven, proactive and comprehensive program that brings water assets to life through continual monitoring. This package includes three steps: continuous condition assessment, data analysis, and infrastructure management.
Our risk management services reduce the risk of damage to your assets by bringing transparency to the infrastructure buried underground. It gives us the ability to make intelligent decisions on infrastructure integrity and replacement in real time, increasing the longevity of your water assets and building the case for repairing and replacing problematic areas. Risk management also prevents environmental degradation through reducing water loss, making storm water run-off more manageable and saving your business money on water production costs by ensuring water reaches its intended destination.
Continuous Condition Assessment
The first step to minimize the risk of aging pipelines is to continuously monitor the day-to-day status of the water network. Matchpoint will deploy hand selected monitoring equipment to meet each clients specific situation, needs, and distribution system. The technology will highlight any abnormalities and generates real time data of the condition of your water network. This data then flows into our web based software, where it can be accessed and analyzed.
We interpret the data provided during the condition assessment phase. Our software automatically predicts and warns of future events, giving our clients the ability to prevent them from happening in the first place. Our analytics team also assesses any anomalies in the data and decides if further investigation is needed.
If additional assessment is needed, our crews are deployed to investigate the areas of concern highlighted in the condition assessment phase and realized in data analysis phase. This requires a skillful crew that can select the appropriate technology. We then generate a report on our findings, which is delivered to the client.
We offer monitoring of potable and/or wastewater networks. The technology we deploy retrieves data from the monitored areas, generating meaningful information. This information is included in the “Continual Condition Assessment” part of our Risk Management services.
This proactive solution also includes District Metered Area (DMA) management. It provides real time information on the integrity of water infrastructure, reduces overall water loss and non-revenue water, and gives our clients priceless knowledge, as they able to see the condition of their assets improve the longer they employ our services.
Leak detection isn’t a one-time activity. Our leak detection programs help clients evaluate the integrity of their water network by locating and pinpointing leakage. This service is included in the “Infrastructure Management” part of our Risk Management services. Leak detection services are executed on potable waterlines and pipes of all materials and sizes. We can also implement non-invasive methodology and do internal pipe leak detection services.
The ability to identify leaks reduces the amount of water that is lost, saves money on non-revenue water, and offers money teary benefits by ensuring treated water reaches its intended destination and isn’t lost in leaky pipes. We can also integrate GIS, which makes our reporting more accurate, and leakage rates are quantified so repairs can be prioritized.
GIS mapping is an integral part of superior asset management. In conjunction with or separate to our leak detection services, we offer GIS mapping and digitizing on water system assets.
Matchpoint validates, verifies and computerizes system information, such as valve, meter, and pipe locations, and makes the data available in GIS format for any software in any datum projection. Sub-meter accuracy and unlimited attribute fields are also available.
As digitized system records are easily updatable, they surpass hard copy record-keeping in asset tracking accuracy. System maintenance services, such as leak detection, become more productive once GIS is implemented, as more time can be spent evaluating the network instead of locating it. Our services extend from developing digitized distribution maps for clients in GIS infancy, to updating records within well-established mapping systems.
Training and Support
We offer training and support with the purchase of equipment to ensure clients know how to use our equipment to its maximum potential, as well as how to identity leak noise and analyze the data produced. This includes lifetime support on all our products sold.
Acoustic leak detection is an art form. It takes practice to differentiate background noise from leak noise. Our experts are masters of this art and the equipment we sell is the same equipment we use in the field.
