Recent changes to the SC DHEC sanitary survey inspection program require a utility to initiate a water loss control program (water audit) and show annual improvements with regards to non-revenue water. A water audit is a comprehensive review of water supply and billing records designed to reduce loss and increase needed revenue. Water audits can give the utility a detailed profile of the distribution system and water users, improving management of operations while conserving valuable resources.
