BPUB to Conduct Water and Meter Management Audit
The Brownsville Public Utilities Board (BPUB) re-scheduled the previously postponed water audit on the water distribution system to Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 11 p.m. through Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 4 a.m.
The water and meter management audit is performed every five years and helps BPUB identify any potential water losses in its water distribution system. During this test, water mains throughout the city will be isolated to monitor and pinpoint any potential water losses. The project is done with assistance from BPUB staff across multiple departments, including Information Technology, Geographic Information Systems, Water Plants, Operations, Customer Service and Engineering.
Once the audit is complete, JBS Water will gather the data and present any findings along with recommendations to BPUB via an audit report.
Please note that no service interruptions for BPUB customers are expected as a result of the audit.
