[ARCHIVED] Leak-seeking begins

Using an acoustic listening device, the survey crew will listen for leaks on all fire hydrants, some main line and service line valves. They will listen for sounds of a water leak, such as water gurgling or water spraying. If a leak sound is heard, the crew will correlate the leak sound (narrow down the area) and pinpoint the leak.

Leaks may be discovered on fire hydrants, water main lines or valves, private service lines or valves and sometimes from internal plumbing fixtures. In the event a leak sound is detected on a private line the crew may ask for assistance from the property owner to verify the leak. 

This may entail access onto private property or access to the water meter inside the structure.  In general, work will be conducted on weekdays between the hours of 7:00 AM and 4:00 PM, with minimal late night and early weekend hours due to noise interference and/or traffic.  

All project personnel - Cranberry Township and the sub-contractor, will carry an approved Township-issued photo ID badge at all times.  Crews may venture onto private property to detect a leak or require access into your home or business. If you do not wish to grant access at that time, please contact Cranberry Township at 724-776-4806 to schedule an appointment.
