2022 Leak Detection Survey
The Lowell Regional Water Utility (LRWU) is conducting a leak detection survey across Lowell beginning November 14, 2022. The goal of this survey is to locate leaks on water mains, hydrants and water services throughout the water distribution system. This information serves to aid LRWU in infrastructure maintenance and minimizing unaccounted for water throughout the system. Any leaks located throughout the survey will be recorded and prioritized for repair.
The survey has been contracted to Consulting Engineering Inc. Residential areas will be surveyed throughout the day with evenings targeting the downtown and other high traffic areas. Surveyors will be equipped with identification and vehicle placards indicating their authorization to do this work. This survey will not affect any customers; this is meant purely as a notification to the public to make aware that contractors will be accessing water system valves and hydrants. As always, we appreciate your cooperation as we strive to make improvements to our system and continue delivering safe, potable water in an effective manner.
