Optimizing our clients' systems, and their impact on the environment, in the most cost-efficient manner
Clean water is essential for everyday life and is vital to the health and wellbeing of communities and businesses. As the world population increases, freshwater withdrawals and wastewater discharges continue to stress our natural sources of water. Water conservation measures are becoming commonplace in many parts of the United States that have been affected by ongoing droughts and population growth. The US Environmental Protection Agency estimates that at least 36 states will face water shortages by 2013. At the same time, our aging infrastructure is placing additional demands on utility managers all over the country.
Westhorp & Associates offers a wealth of experience in protecting and preserving this natural resource. Westhorp & Associates has extensive expertise in the preparation of water conservation plans, meter programs, and leak detection surveys. Our engineers have worked successfully with local municipalities to reduce their water losses. We prepare annual audits in accordance with the International Water Association (IWA) standards. Our staff works closely with you to implement a comprehensive meter program to reduce lost revenues. We provide plans that encompass engineering and behavioral practices to reduce the amount of unaccounted for water in your system therefore increasing the revenue available for needed infrastructure maintenance and upgrades.
Our comprehensive unaccounted-for water reduction programs include meter selection and evaluations, meter installation verification, meter testing and replacement programs, verification of consumption data, water audits, and permitting. The programs that we have designed have helped our clients comply with strict water conservation requirements while providing excellent service to their users and an increase in revenues.
