540 Technologies EPA Webinar

April 23, 2018


Leak-detection expert John Brutz, general manager of 540 Technologies™, an LB Water™ affiliated company, presented techniques for managing water loss during a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency webinar series designed for operators of small U.S. water systems.

Presenting during a webinar titled “Water Loss and Distribution System Infrastructure: Leak Detection and Cost Savings,” Brutz explained that operators need to understand the relationship between the water they’re pumping and treating and the water they’re losing through hidden leaks, pipe bursts and other factors if they want to improve their bottom lines.

Brutz offered information about free industry resources and cost-saving, leading-edge technologies that can help utilities assess and manage water loss, including water audits, insertion meters, acoustic leak-detection data loggers and correlators to localize and pinpoint leaks, and remote pressure-monitoring and modulation equipment.

Brutz presented on behalf of FlowNetworx. The company is now doing business as 540 Technologies™ to better reflect its growing smart city portfolio, which also includes smart-grid offerings.The July 25, 2017, EPA webinar featuring Brutz’ presentation can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztoSoqDBKqA
