DALLAS, TX, Nov. 15, 2005 -- As part of its ongoing evaluation of its water transmission infrastructure, Dallas Water Utilities recently employed the Sahara leak detection system to identify leaks in some of its 12, 16, 20, 30 & 36-inch diameter cast iron and PVC pipelines.

A case study describing the project is available at the following link:

Since its inception, the Pressure Pipe Inspection Company (www.ppic.com) has been focused on enabling Condition Based Asset Management. In financial terms, condition based asset management equates to minimizing the current value of monies spent maintaining depreciating pipeline assets. In simple terms, condition based asset management means that water transmission pipeline professionals can make informed capital planning decisions that are based on the actual condition of individual pipe.

Many of North America's largest and most proactive water utilities, consulting engineering firms, contractors and manufacturers have chosen to work with PPIC to implement a condition based asset management program. These firms have chosen to work with PPIC because PPIC prides itself on its integrity, its professionalism, its technical excellence, its experience, its level of service and its commitment to continuing to bring forth proven technologies for the condition assessment of water transmission mains. The company is based in Mississagua, Ontario, Canada.
