Pressure Management and Advanced Metering Infrastructure

Managing pressure in a water distribution system is not an isolated objective. Pressure management works best as one element of a multi-faceted program that also includes acoustic leak detection and temperature monitoring. These sensor systems can become more impactful when interfaced or hosted on an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) system and approached as one component of a holistic asset management program. AMI can help reduce instances of undiscovered leaks through system-generated alerts and keep track of other important metrics and indicators, such as water temperature, which would compromise the integrity of the water pipes and cause new leaks.
