Keeping pipelines in top shape

Water Authority’s asset management program ensures water safety, reliability. Sponsored by San Diego County Water Authority

SAN DIEGO — The Water Authority operates and maintains a water delivery system capable of delivering more than 900 million gallons of water per day. But as the infrastructure naturally ages, it’s essential to actively monitor, replace and repair pipeline to maintain water supply reliability. Martin Coghill, Operations & Maintenance Manager with the San Diego County Water Authority, joins our Laura Cavanaugh on the site of a recent pipeline repair in Bonsall to talk about the advanced technology and resources used to detect potential problems and how this kind of work saves water ratepayers money.

As assets age, the Water Authority proactively replaces and repairs pipelines to minimize impacts to member agencies and the public. Investments in the latest inspection technologies help the Water Authority’s asset management team detect defects in pipelines and related facilities. The defects are identified early, which allows for proactive repairs that save time and money, while protecting our safe and reliable water supply. Learn more at www.sdcwa.org.
