Leakage Workshop – hybrid event

February 2, 2022

Workshop: How can sensors help reduce leakage?

We are pleased to announce that this will be our first ever hybrid event!

We are looking forward to seeing the majority of attendees again in person to benefit from networking opportunities and hands on demonstration of kit by exhibitors.

Leakage is a popular topic, and delegate places and table tops are limited!


Ofwat threw down a major challenge to the water industry this AMP – to reduce leakage by 15%. This is no mean feat, and is requiring innovation in many areas including pipe manufacture and installation, and rapid identification and location when leaks do break out. This workshop will address questions including:

  • Where is the industry in utilising sensor technology to achieve the 15% target?
  • What strategies should the industry be adopting to reduce leakage?
  • What further role can sensors play in reducing leakage?
  • How can sensors be used to make new leak-free networks?
  • What innovations should we expect in the medium term to eliminate leakage in the future?
