The CEC project was led by Hazen and Sawyer and American Water. The project team installed and evaluated the latest advances in leak detection technology, including satellite imagery leak detection. Read a summary of the CEC report on ASTERRA.io.

The CEC project was a cooperative effort with vendors to provide a side-by-side comparison of available tools and to measure the return on investment in terms of energy savings. The result of the work done by the CEC four years ago is now being realized in San Diego County. The San Diego County Water Authority coordinated member agencies to partner and share the costs of participating in the use of satellite leak detection from ASTERRA, a global company with U.S. headquarters in San Diego.
