The Leakage Component Analysis (LCA) Model was developed to provide the water industry with a computer-based model for leakage component analysis, failure frequency analysis, economic leakage control intervention strategy evaluation, and display of key water loss performance indicators. The LCA Model is a complementary analysis tool to the AWWA Free Water Audit Software and was designed using a standard Microsoft Office Excel software program. The leakage component analysis model was developed with the needs of utility users in mind to provide a water loss analysis software tool that is accessible, user-friendly, and has a reasonable level of complexity.
