Ovarro Leak Technology Supports WaterAid in Nepal
Nov 23, 2020
Advanced technology from leak detection specialists Ovarro will support efforts to establish a reliable water supply in a Nepalese town.
Key to this initiative is the provision of leak detection training which has led to more than 300 leaks being found. By using Ovarro’s advanced equipment, including ground microphones, data loggers and pipe locators, the leakage teams will be able to find and repair even more leaks, further reducing the amount of water that is lost – vital in preserving the town’s precious water supplies.
Fewer than half of Lahan’s 98,000 people have access to piped water. The town’s network consists of just one treatment works, five operational boreholes and around 59km of pipes, operated by 21 staff. Water is supplied intermittently for three hours in the morning and three hours in the evening and leakage is high – about half the water supply is lost before it reaches communities.
“Beacon was born from a recognition that Anglian Water and its partners have much more to offer than financial donations. Although this remains a big part of our support for WaterAid we also have knowledge, skills and expertise that we can and should share with others to make a lasting difference. Sustainability underpins everything the Beacon Project seeks to achieve. This isn’t a short term intervention – it is seeking to build capabilities and develop the parties involved such that the changes delivered can be maintained and operated long after the project has concluded.”
Kevin Brook, Ovarro UK sales director, said: “We're proud to be supporting Anglian Water’s Beacon Project with a donation of our leak detection equipment. This fantastic project aims to bring clean water, a good standard of toilets and improved hygiene to people in Lahan. The local leakage teams are doing vital work and we will be keeping up to date with their progress.”
