Description:

Accurate and timely detection of leaks in water supply pipes is a significant environmental issue. Development of efficient non-invasive methods would lead into significant water saving and prevention of health hazards introduced by water leakage. This paper shows the ability to use a High Resolution Ground Penetrating Imaging Radar (GPIR), to be used as an instrument for water pipeline rehabilitation situations, parallel to the existing industrial equipment. In the framework of the European research initiative WATERPIPE, a Decision Support System (DSS) for the rehabilitation management of the underground water pipelines has been developed, parallel to the implementation of the GPIR.
