Contractor to Perform Leak Detection Tests on Roswell Water System

The City of Roswell’s Water Utility Division is taking a proactive approach to detecting leaks in its water system by utilizing funds from Georgia Environmental Finance Authority’s (GEFA) Water Loss Technical Assistance Program.

Funds from GEFA’s Water Loss Technical Assistance Program, awarded to the City of Roswell in April 2017, are intended to fund projects that have been identified through GEFA’s water loss audit process. Matchpoint, a water utility company contracted by GEFA, will be assisting the City by surveying approximately 45 miles of its water system. Matchpoint began surveying the system on Jan. 8 and is expected to be completed by early February. Several tests will be performed on the water system, using listening devices to determine if there are potential leaks in hydrants, meters and sample/flush stations. If leaks are found, the City will be notified immediately in order to effectively repair when necessary.

In some cases, water customers may experience a disruption in service for no more than a few minutes.

“We are pleased to find a solution to identifying and repairing leaks in our water system that is not only effective, but cost-efficient to the City’s water customers. The Water Utility’s mission is to produce and ensure the safe and reliable delivery of the highest quality of drinking water to its water customers,” said Chris Boyd Water Utility Manager.
