This project did a thorough review of the potential techniques which could monitor the structural performance of operationally critical mains (those 30" or 760mm in diameter and larger) of potable water distribution systems. The objective was to increase effective pipeline management as it relates to predictive failure. Parameters studied were global , local and environmental monitoring and the technologies studies were continuous, remote and in-pipe sensing. Gathering data from range of different sensors(aircraft, satellites, within and on pipes) proved the most optimal , with the understanding that further study of newer methods is recommended.
