Please read full story here Wave – TEC – Godalming College Case Study 7.12.22

Godalming College, who joined TEC’s managed Wastewater Framework took the opportunity to address a problematic leak which previous contractors had failed to rectify. Supplier Wave was awarded from the TEC framework as the College’s water supplier to investigate.

The investigation lead to the leak being detected through techniques such as acoustic surveys which use sound to find the leak. Once located, Wave suggested moling, which is a trenchless method of laying pipes. During this process, a pneumatically driven machine forces its way through soil along the desired path of the pipe.

The result led to all leaks being fixed and Godalming College was back to their expected water consumption saving more than £8k year and over 3,600m3! Proving to Thames Water that some of the water the College consumed had gone into the ground and not into the sewers for processing, Wave were also able to claim back £4,850 on behalf of the College.
