• Measure the infrastructure and significantly increase the number of leaks found by compliance rather than by the public (through odor calls) to avoid government-imposed penalties on each leak not found by compliance.


  • The customer immediately reduced the number of leaks found by odor call-ins by identifying them through Picarro advanced mobile compliance. 
  • Because of the >10x improvement in the number of important leaks found through compliance, the utility avoided considerable expense in penalties. 


The Picarro system was used to swiftly replace traditional leak survey for an immediate financial benefit. Picarro worked with the utility to assist in change management to rapidly and efficiently transition to a 100% Picarro-based asset management model.
