BWSSB Ultrosonic Flow meters What can they do?

289 users have liked.

I saw this leak presumably Cauvery water, during my usual morning walk to day at about 6:15 AM. Instead of picking up a telephone and putting in my complaint at some BBMP  ward office I thought of putting a blog entry on Praja. The BWSSB has installed Ultrasonic flow meters all around Bangalore  for detecting pilferage and or leakages.

I am not sure whether these kinds of leakages can be detected let alone the exact location identified.

Does anyone have data on BWSSB Leakage?

PSA sir, thanks for the pictures. Should ask BWSSB for what they capture using their Flow Meters. Would be nice to know how efficient BWSSB's distribution system is.

We may already have this data, might have been collected for Water Index project work, which seems to be in slow mode these days.

Could be to check consumption

These meters are probably for checking the quantity that flows past to get an idea of consumption levels across the city's various neighbourhoods. Perhaps it can also be used to detect leaks (if consumption goes too high ?).

Ultrasonic flow meters are used on fuel lines for large diesel generators & other engines in industries to monitor fuel consumption.

These meters are being used for flow monitoring.BWSSB claims that by these meters they can measure bulk flows in the network,

But are they working?  how doyou know if they are in working condition ? comment guidelines
