Water loss control, leak detection and related utility management practices will be taught in workshops designed to share water loss ‘best practices’ between utilities.  Partially modeled on a successful statewide water loss control program in Georgia, the plan takes a two-pronged approach to meet utilities at their level of experience with the water loss control concepts.  The Collaborative recognizes the efforts of California utilities that have already compiled water audits following the AWWA M36 methodology using the AWWA Free Water Audit Software.
