Objectives

  • Survey the infrastructure and significantly increase the number of leaks found by leak survey rather than by the public (through odor calls) to avoid government-imposed penalties on each leak not found by leak survey.

ROI

  • The customer immediately reduced the number of leaks found by odor call-ins by identifying them through Picarro advanced mobile leak survey. 
  • Because of the >10x improvement in the number of important leaks found through leak survey, the utility avoided considerable expense in penalties. 

Highlight

The Picarro system was used to swiftly replace traditional leak survey for an immediate financial benefit. Picarro worked with the utility to assist in change management to rapidly and efficiently transition to a 100% Picarro-based asset management model.
