A summary of distribution system leakage was presented in Table 3-13. As shown, distribution system leakage for the last 3 years has averaged 20%. This is believed to be mostly due to inaccurate service meters, as many of the County Club service meters are very old. The County intends to replace the meters as part of a project to implement an automated drive-by meter reading system.
Testing is also needed to confirm the accuracy of the supply meters.
