Search tips:

  • This form will search for words in the title OR the description. If you would like to search for the same term(s) across both the title and description, enter the same search term(s) in both fields.
  • This form will search for any of the words you enter in a field, not the exact phrase you enter. If you would like to search for an exact phrase, put double quotes (") around the phrase. For example, if you search for Bike Path you will get results containing either the word Bike OR the word Path, but if you search for "Bike Path" you will get results containing the exact phrase Bike Path.
  1. FY19 Line Losses

    Associated Project(s): 

    Water purchased from IAWC:                                                     797,775 kgals


    Water metered and billed to buildings and plants:             786,447 kgals


    Water line Losses –                                                                             11,328 kgals


    1.4% loss

  2. Calculating line losses

    Associated Project(s): 

    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.

  3. Decaying Water Main Infrastructure

    Associated Project(s): 

    According to the EPA, about 30 percent of the pipes the United States water infrastructure are between 40 to 80 years old. The aging water system is dangerous to public health and often causes property loss and inconvenience. The University's pipe survey, which looked at the pipe system on campus property to find leaks, will help to combat this national problem at the university level.
