Paper Title:
Acoustic Leak Survey of the Underground Potable Water System at a CONUS Army Installation
  Abstract

U. S. Army Corps of Engineers Engineer Research and Development Center, Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (ERDC-CERL), and Carlyle Consulting’s John Carlyle conducted a leak detection survey at a U.S. Army Installation. The age of pipes in the distribution system ranged from 20 to 60 years. The thrust of the work was to acoustically survey all of the underground pipelines constituting the installation’s potable water distribution system and find any leaks. The results of the survey were that 6 leaks were discovered in the main lines, 63 leaks associated with fire hydrants, freeze proof hose bibs, water meters, etc., and 33 leaks inside buildings. Over two thousand acoustic measurements were made in order to obtain these results.
