Pilot Water Audit Project

Massachusetts Water Resources Authority


> Low-Flow Toilet Retrofit Rebate Project
> Community Support Home

MWRA has received a $40,000 grant from MassDEP to conduct a Pilot Water Audit Project. MWRA is currently looking for 2 or 3 communities to participate in the project during CY2008. The water audit will balance the volume of water purchased from MWRA (wholesale purchase) with the volume billed (retail sales) and account for the remainder of non-billed water volume.  The project will help the community minimize its non-billed or unaccounted-for-water (UAW).  A summary report will be prepared detailing the project results/lessons learned and will be shared with other MWRA communities.

Communities should review the Water Management Act Program Guidance Document and Forms for a Water Audit and the Water Resources Commission MA Water Conservation Standards (see pages 10-12: System Water Audits and Leak Detection).

Sign-up deadline is April 18, 2008

Interested communities should contact Kristen Hall, Project Manager, MWRA Community Support Program at (617) 788-4831 or
