The IEPA is sponsoring Water Loss Audit training to provide free training on a useful tool for utilities to use to better understand their water systems. The training will be based on the AWWA M36 Water Audits and Loss Control manual. Each training session will be a full-day and consist of a morning lecture and afternoon hands-on using the AWWA Water Loss Audit software. The morning session will be a powerpoint presentation to familiarize the participants with the history of water loss auditing, the benefits of doing an audit and an introduction to the audit software. The afternoon session will be a hands on demo of the software.
To get the most out of this training, participants are asked to bring a laptop with the software downloaded and data from their water systems, however this is not required. Discussion will also include information on how to address sources of water loss.The training will be held throughout the state and will be provided by Illinois Section AWWA and Illinois Rural Water Association.
