Hendersonville, TN (PRWEB) May 19, 2006
According to the American Water Works Association, "Recent water usage data published by the United States Geological Survey shows that, of the 40 billion gallons of water withdrawn each day (bgd) in the United States by water utilities, only 34 bgd of this amount is documented as end-user consumption. The missing 6 bgd is categorized simply as "public use/loss" reflecting USGS's recognition that unmonitored public use (firefighting, street cleaning, etc.), accounting shortcomings and leakage inhibit the ability to attain a true balance of withdrawal and use totals. The quantity of water labeled as "public use/loss" - which is more than enough to meet the water needs of the ten largest US cities combined - reflects the huge margin of error that currently exists in quantifying actual water use amounts vs. water loss amounts in drinking water utilities. By consistently employing a reliable and standardized water audit methodology, the North American water industry should gradually improve the reporting accuracy for its water delivery components of valid usage and losses."
Recognizing the need for a solution to accurate records management, The UCN Companies today announced the launching of a web-based water audit records management system - AuditKeeper - accessible at http://www.WaterAudit.com.
According to the company, "WaterAudit.com, featuring AuditKeeper, was established to provide water utilities an opportunity to easily keep track of water usage and system information via a low cost, monthly enrollment plan. The system will enable the utility to remain in compliance with new State regulations for water conservation and accountability by providing a complete, updated water audit per the new AWWA/IWA standards, and on a regular month-to-month basis."
