Pure Technologies Ltd. is pleased to announce that Dallas City Council has authorized the award of a three-year service contract worth up to US$8.5 million to Pure’s wholly-owned subsidiaries, Pure Technologies U.S. Inc. and Pressure Pipe Inspection Company (USA) Inc.
Under the contract, Pure will provide leak detection, electromagnetic inspection and other condition assessment services for Dallas Water Utilities (DWU), which services 2.4 million customers in Dallas, Texas and nearby communities. DWU maintains more than 5,000 miles of water mains and 4,300 miles of wastewater collection pipelines, making it one of the largest pipeline networks in the U.S. This service agreement builds on a leak detection and condition assessment program that commenced in 2004. Under the initial program, condition assessment and leak surveys of pipelines resulted in substantial water savings and avoided pre-mature failure of pipelines.
The non-destructive leak detection surveying and condition assessment services provided by Pure allow DWU to maintain optimum productivity and system reliability by reducing downtime and inspection time. Additionally, this service agreement enables DWU to monitor pipeline conditions effectively, and plan and coordinate maintenance projects.
