Amorient is an exclusive agent of Pure Technologies (a Xylem brand and leader in leak detection technology) in the region.

 

Navy waterlines were registering losses of 50% and once the segment suspected to be contributing to these losses was identified along Route 16, Amorient used a high-sensitivity inline acoustic leak detection device along with LED light source and video camera, called SAHARA from Pure TechnologiesThe tethered system is inserted into a live pipeline and the footage viewed in real-time, enabling fast reporting. An above-ground operation tracks the position of the SAHARA sensor and marks the location of the leak. 

Six sections of the water main were inspected (13,400 LF), with three leaks identified - one later determined to be approximately 200,000 gal/day. Additionally seven undocumented bends were identified via CCTV. Amorient performed the repairs, which included obtaining all the required permits. Amorient also performed leak detection for Route 8.
