Media Alert - Media invitation to cover live demo of "Talking Pipeline"

LONDON, ON, Nov. 10, 2016 /CNW/ - You are invited to attend and cover a milestone event of the Huron-Elgin-London-Project Clean Water celebrating the completion of the Acoustic Fibre Optic Monitoring System (AFO) for the Lake Huron water transmission pipeline.

HELP Clean Water is a unique regional infrastructure program funded by the Government of Canada, the Government of Ontario, the City of London, the Lake Huron Primary Water Supply System and the Elgin Area Primary Water Supply System.   

Live Demo

Along with representatives of the governments of Canada and Ontario and invited guests, including faculty and students from Western University and Fanshawe College, you will witness a live demonstration of the Lake Huron AFO monitoring system and see the results of accumulated data.

An Acoustic Fibre Optic (AFO) cable is located within the 1200mm water pipelines that run for nearly 50 km between the Lake Huron Water Treatment Plant and the terminal reservoir just north of London. The AFO system remotely detects the acoustic signature of breaks in the pipeline structural reinforcement and records the specific pipe location of the deterioration, alerting operating staff who can intervene in advance of a catastrophic failure.
