Mapping Pressures within Pressure Zones
Track: Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater

In the fall of 2012 the City of Asheville Water Resources department decided to investigate causes of Non-Revenue Water. One of the major factors of Non-Revenue Water comes from leaks. The City's Water service serves customers between 2000 to 4000 ft. To solve this problem GIS was used to study this problem by creating buffers and clipping pressure zones by contour data. Now, the City can strategically reduce pressures in problematic areas and reduce the amount of water lost to leaks.
