Reducing water loss critical as drought conditions spread to majority of U.S.
Public attention on water efficiency provides opportunity to address infrastructure needs
INDIANAPOLIS, July 18, 2012 -- As drought conditions worsen across the United States, public attention is focusing on ways to use water more efficiently and reduce water loss. For example, severe conditions in Indiana this week prompted the Department of Homeland Security to issue a water shortage warning for the entire state.
Large water consumers have been asked to reduce consumption by 10 to 15 percent and the City of Indianapolis has issued a ban on watering lawns and washing cars. The city broke a 104-year record for the longest dry spell with only 0.09 inches of rain from June 1 through July 16.
While such emergency measures are necessary in the short term, Global Water Technologies (OTC Pink: GWTR) is focusing on long-term solutions to reduce water loss. The company is introducing a patented new technology from Europe that addresses underground water problems where large amounts of treated water are lost though old, leaking pipes.
The innovative system provides a real-time monitoring solution that measures pressure, flow and noise conditions in water mains and uses proprietary software to analyze changes in leak conditions. In addition, Global Water intends to begin development work on software analytics that may allow predictive modeling of such metrics for use in an early warning system for water main breaks.
More information on reducing water loss is available on a new page of the company's web site at: www.gwtr.com
