Surveys in Galway

Over the last two weeks, GMC, with the assistance of Galway County Council, carried out a conditional assessment survey and an acoustic leak detection and trace survey on 1km of potable water trunk mains.

This was done using PIPA pressurised mains surveying equipment (Flowrider) that features a visual inspection camera and uses hydrophone technology.

The mains were successfully surveyed and identified GIS anomalies such as uncharted connections, line of mains and valve ETC.
The operation was carried out over four nights and three leaks were identified and are now ready to be repaired.

GMC would like to express a sincere thanks for all parties involved including Galway County Council and Uisce Éireann, that allow this survey to be successful.
