Stream Control™ provides solutions that enable water utilities to save water, lower costs and increase operational efficiency.
For this purpose we have developed The Aqua-Guard™ System, a solution for dynamic pressure management in urban water networks.
The solution is based on an advanced electronic controller that is designed to optimize the water pressure, significantly reduce leaks and prevent new bursts while maintaining required service levels.
Dynamic Pressure Management is the most immediate and cost-effective solution to leakage reduction therefor becoming a preferred option for utilities in their efforts to save water.
It is increasingly evident that water is a scarce and valuable resource. At the same time however huge amounts of treated water is lost from urban water supplies around the world. According to the European Environment Agency (EEA), unaccounted water reaches an extent of 22-25% in Spain and England, 30% in Italy, 35% in Ireland, and 40% in Slovenia.
The World Bank estimates that every year $16.6B of potential revenue from water is lost, and in extreme case the average loss NRW (Non-Revenue Water) approaches 50% of the water produced. Out of this amount $10B is estimated to be real loss occurring from leaks in the system. Water utilities cannot sustain such losses in the long term, and as a result leakage is becoming one of the major strategic issues that need to be dealt with in a swift and efficient manner.
