Leaks & Detection

Leaks & Detection

Annually, Des Moines Water Works completes a leak survey of the entire distribution system using ultrasonic leak detection equipment. The survey is completed using two techniques – hydrant top survey and valve top survey. Using these two techniques allows DMWW to thoroughly check for leaks in a comprehensive manner. Each year, more than 100 leaks are confirmed and repaired, saving as much as 100 million gallons of water.

Des Moines Water Works also provides leak detection services to the following municipalities: Ankeny, Clive, Indianola, Johnston, and Urbandale.

For more information on leak detection services, please contact Des Moines Water Works at 515.323.6281
