American Water and Echologics Partner on Leak Detection Project in Illinois

The Illinois Sustainable Technology Center (ISTC) launched a One Billion Gallon Water Challenge in 2014 to promote water conservation measures by businesses, industries, communities, and the general public in Illinois.

ISTC has partnered with American Water and Echologics to validate the efficacy of an advanced leak detection technology based on acoustic monitoring within the Metropolitan Chicago area. 

As of January 2015, the program has avoided $12,000 in unnecessary costs due to early detection of leaks and saved 3.25 million gallons of non-revenue water.
