Calculating line losses

Posted by Morgan White on September 27, 2019

We can calculate the difference between what was billed, and what was purchased for potable water on campus. The difference could be made up of several things:

• Leaks

• Unbilled usage (that is, someone is taking water off the system for which we don’t have a meter reading)

• Meter errors

• Difference in usage days.

IAWC bills out on a consistent basis. Our utility meter reads don’t always correspond to the same schedule.
