Echologics “smart” water site

Echologics, an affiliate of Mueller Co., has opened a new innovation site dedicated to testing “smart” solutions for leak detection and pipe condition assessment, representing a significant commitment to addressing the growing challenge of aging water main infrastructure. The site features real life applications for water infrastructure technology, including more than 2,000 feet of plastic and metallic water mains with diameters ranging from 6-inches to 16-inches. Water network connections at the site are provided by Mueller and include resilient wedge gate valves, fire hydrants, automatic flushing systems and service connection.
The research and development center, which is located in Walkerton, Ontario, Canada, will allow Echologics’ engineers to test new solutions, showcase capabilities, and provide operators with hands-on training experiences.
“Ontario congratulates Echologics for establishing a research and training facility in Walkerton, Ontario,” said Reza Moridi, Ontario’s Minister of Research and Innovation. “Ontario’s water sector continues to be a priority for the province, and by establishing this site, Echologics demonstrates that it shares our commitment to protecting the water supply for generations.”
