Predictive Modeling for Lead Service Lines at AWWA ACE23 Conference

Are you planning to attend the world’s premier water conference? Meet us at the American Water Works Association (AWWA) ACE in Toronto June 11-14. This year’s ACE Conference theme is The Future of Water is 2050. By then we plan to have removed lead service lines (LSLs) from our drinking water system. Catch us to learn how we’re working with communities across the U.S. and Canada to get the lead out!

Presentation: LSLs in Halifax, NS, Canada

Using statistical models to locate lead service lines in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

8:30 AM EST Tuesday June 13 in the Asset Management track. Location: Beanfield 200BC

BlueConduit’s Ian Robinson will speak with Halifax Water’s Water Quality Manager Wendy Krkosek

Halifax Water has committed to replacing all public and private lead service lines by 2038. One of the main challenges for Halifax Water to meet its 2038 replacement goal is understanding where lead service lines exist and developing an accurate inventory. The accuracy of historical records varies significantly between two different regions that have lead service lines, with almost no records of service material in one particular area. In this talk, attendees will learn how Halifax Water utilized best practices in statistical modeling to reduce the unknown and uncertainty in its service line inventory, empowering decision-makers with information to move forward on planning service line replacements and meeting the utility’s 2038 goal.
