Illinois Section AWWA - E-Splash - June 2013
District 5 Trustee
If you’re a supervisor or above and you’re looking
for leadership training, you need to check out the Illinois Public Service
Institute that is held in Effingham every October.
This year’s T-Con March Conference in Springfield
was very well attended by both vendors and members. If you attended then you
know it was a very good conference. If
you were unable to attend this year, try to attend next year.
Our Village purchased a Stethopon 04 wireless
compact listening device for detecting leaks. This is a step to identify leaks
in our distribution system. Our plan is to identify areas of mains that are
leaking, then contact a reputable company to pin point the leak. As a small
system operator, this is a very cost effective way to control water loss. As
most of you are aware, water loss is costly. I will continue to update on our progress.
