GRAFTON, N.D. -- The North Dakota Rural Water Systems
Association is working with about 35 cities and systems in eastern
North Dakota on water audits.
Executive Director Stuart Carlson said the group wants to help the
agencies better account for the water they treat and distribute. The
information eventually will be part of a statewide water conservation
plan, he said.
"In the water conservation plan, we're looking at metering, we're
looking at pressure in your system," Carlson said. "Is it adequate?
Is it too high? We're looking at leak detection. We're looking at
education information programs.
"The idea is just to provide some data to the city leaders that
gives them a blueprint -- gives them a little better idea of the
water they're using and trying to make an accounting for that water
that they're unable to trace," he said.
