The Water Loss Control Workshop content will provide an organized review of the foundations of the AWWA M36 water audit, with presentations designed around a water system's overall water balance. Concepts for water loss component analysis will be introduced. The components of water supplied, authorized consumption, apparent loss, and real loss will be explored in detail with the emphasis on non-revenue water. The class will demonstrate how to detail and develop the non-volume inputs for the top-down water audit which include system data and cost data that are used to calculate performance indicators. The Data Grading Matrix will be reviewed, to reinforce the concepts of scoring data reliability. The Level 1 Validation method will be introduced and exercised, which will be modeled from the Water Research Foundation Project 4639. The class will also focus on field processes and procedures, data gathering and documentation, that should be incorporated into the daily routines for water loss control programming
This webinar is 8:00 am - 11:00 am on June 10 - 11, 2020.
Instructor: Mike Simpson
Michael Simpson began his career in the water industry with the company in 1983 as a field technician testing and repairing large water meters. A few short years later the company began performing leak detection for water utilities. Michael learned the leak detection craft, then designed and implemented the company’s leak detection program. By combining the large meter testing with leak detection experiences and water audit skills, Michael created the company’s Water Loss Control program. Working with team members and adding their Valve Assessment and Fire Hydrant Assessment programs, complete Asset Management / Distribution System Evaluation Programs were developed. Today, he oversees the company as a whole, focusing on financial management and business development.
Michael joined AWWA in 1983. He has served on AWWA’s Water Loss Control Committee, Manufacturers Associates Council, Diversity Committee, multiple Section level committees in Multiple Sections, currently CA-NV Section’s Water Loss Control, Meter and Asset Management Committees, and has served as an officer of both the Association and the Indiana Section AWWA. Michael has been awarded Kenneth J. Miller Founders Water For People Award for volunteerism, the AWWA John Lechner Award from both the Indiana and Illinois Sections and AWWA’s prestigious George Warren Fuller Award. Michael lives in Valparaiso, Indiana with his wife Sharon.
