Stewart Park, based in Middlesbrough, covers approximately 120 acres and consists of both mature woodland and open parkland. Two sets of lakes provide a habitat for their water fowl, they also have a pets corner with many types of animals including fallow deer, llamas and goats.
Water charges within the park has been consistently rising and had reached £30,000 per annum. Over such a large park with scattered facilities and little knowledge of the water network on site, no solutions had been identified.
Mouchel Group and Middlesbrough Council contacted Demeter to help find a solution.
Demeter quickly implemented their own water monitoring system, Utilities Manager and investigations commenced.
The Utilities Manager system confirmed a background leakage, shown to be 30m3 per day.
An investigation was started to identify the mains layout and pinpoint the leak through a process of installation of valves and step testing.
The leak was found, excavated and successfully repaired.
Due to the little knowledge of this water network, this leak could have caused damage and increased expense amounting to thousands of pounds.
With the Utilities Manager software and expert technicial assistance, the problem was sourced and fixed.
