The Regional Municipality of York wished to carry out a comprehensive leakage reduction program. They turned to a Miya company to execute this project, which was, and still is, the largest contracted leakage reduction program in Canada.
To implement a full range of water efficiency activities to reduce water losses by 3.8 MLD (Million Liters Daily).
This project was an eight-year comprehensive water loss reduction project, which involved a full range of water efficiency activities.
Physical Loss Reduction Activities include:
- DMA implementation
- Step testing
- Leak location
- Leakage repair
- Post-repair profiling to confirm savings
The cost of the project was about US$ 1.8 million, 20% of which was performance-based.
- The total water loss reduction represents 156% of the original project target of 5.96 MLD (Million Liters daily)
- DMA implementation led to the recovery of 7.65 MLD
- Pressure control fostered water savings of 1.69 MLD
- Energy saved - 975,000 kWh/year
- CO2 emissions were reduced by 263,000 kg annually
