United Utilities launches space mission to find leaks

April 26, 2018

WARRINGTON, UK – United Utilities has launched its own space mission to find leaks on its water network.

The water company has recently completed a leakage detection trial using innovative satellite technology which was originally developed to detect water under the surface of other planets.

It partnered with SUEZ and Utilis, a company that specialises in analysing satellite imagery acquired by Japanese satellite ALOS 2, to find potable water that’s leaked into the ground.
