INDIANAPOLIS, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Global Water Technologies (OTC Pink: GWTR) has partnered with the Buried Asset Management Institute – International (BAMI-I) to test new solutions for aging water infrastructure.
Global Water Technologies is introducing a patented new system from Europe that uses multi-parameter sensors and software to reduce water loss in drinking water systems. This is a significant problem in the United States, where aging underground pipes typically lose more than 20 percent of treated water before it reaches customers. In addition to wasting water and energy, leaking pipes result in hundreds of daily water main breaks that cause extensive damage and disrupt business.
BAMI-I provide a center of excellence for owners of underground water infrastructure to join with industry and researchers, using sound science, to evaluate and develop buried asset management protocols to benefit ratepayers and other stakeholders by:
- protecting public health
- maximizing asset lifecycle value
- improving the environment
- sustaining economic development
- enhancing the quality of life
"Sustainable cities must improve efficiency in their water infrastructure," said Erik Hromadka, CEO of Global Water Technologies. "This requires new ideas and collaboration among water utilities, community leaders, research universities and innovative companies."

Global Water Technologies is seeking municipal and financial partners for a pilot project in the U.S. to demonstrate how the new technology can provide early leak detection and reduce water main breaks. Communities interested in participating in a pilot project should contact the company.
