To help utilities evaluate non-revenue water, the Indiana Legislature enacted Senate Enrolled Act 4 (2019), which obligates water utilities to complete annual water loss audits. In addition, in every even-numbered year, starting in 2020 the legislation requires these water loss audits be validated by a certified, third-party  water loss audit validator (“Certified Validator”) and submitted to the IFA for compilation into a biennial report to the General Assembly. The requirements apply to all Community Water Systems that supply water to users via meters. This workshop prepares and assists utilities to comply with SEA 4. This is a course that will be a refresher on the process and best practices to complete a Water Audit and will also cover using the new Version 6.0 AWWA Software.
