Water Loss Audit - Auditor Training | Texas Water Development Board

Water Loss Audit - Auditor Training

Water loss audits are required to be completed by a person trained to conduct water loss auditing. Training made available by the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) satisfies Texas Water Code Section 16.0121(i) (amended by House Bill 1573 of the 85th Legislature). This training is associated with the individual, not the utility, and is only required once, unless there are subsequent legislative requirements changes.

Below is a link to a video that is approximately an hour in length. Once you have watched the video and training has been completed, you will receive instructions on how to download, save and print an acknowledgement of completion of the training. You must maintain the acknowledgement of training in your personal records and upload it to the water loss audit every year you are submitting an audit. TWDB will not maintain these records but will verify that the individual has received training by viewing the acknowledgement attached to the water loss audit. The name on the acknowledgement should match the name of the individual completing the water loss audit.

Water loss auditors may also satisfy Texas Water Code Section 16.0121(i) by attending a TWDB Water Loss Audit Workshop.

Total Water Loss Control Workshops

The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB) is planning a series of training workshops employing the Total Water Loss Control Program; encompassing the Water Use Survey, the Water Loss Audit, the Annual Conservation Report, and Water Conservation Plan.

The workshops will focus on all aspects of water loss, including collecting and reporting correct data, assessing, auditing, and validating the reported data.

The Total Water Loss Control Program considers water loss from an environmental stewardship perspective, reviews public utility revenue loss, and promotes the protection of public health by eliminating the threat of sanitary defects associated with leaking or broken pipes.

Finally, these workshops will provide information on the assessment scale which helps to identify action items determined by the water loss audit. The workshops are approved for 4 hours of continuing education for licensed operators through the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality.

Attendance at these workshops also satisfies the legislative requirement under 31 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) ยง 358.6 (b)(4), requiring water loss auditor training prior to submitting a water loss audit to the TWDB. The training requirement can also be satisfied by viewing a pre-recorded training video.

Please contact WLA-Group@twdb.texas.gov for any questions.
