Ms. Joanna Yager, Section Manager of Leak Survey, ConEdison

March 21, 2019

Ms. Yager is a Section Manager of the Leak Survey group at Con Edison. She is responsible for a diverse team that locates and investigates leaks on gas facilities. Ms. Yager holds a BS in Bioengineering from Binghamton University.

In 2018, Con Edison completed a series of field trials to compare the leaks found using traditional DPIR methods to cavity ring down spectroscopy (CRDS). To gain familiarity and confidence with the new leak detection technology, seven sets of field trials were executed for data acquisition and analysis. Con Edison established a plan to test the technology over 7 weeks within a non-business district of approximately 11,000 services. Various data points were tracked throughout the process, including total number of search areas, % success in search area investigations, and increased leaks found by grade. This presentation will introduce the audience to CRDS technology, provide an overview of the 2018 field trial process, and detail the results of the trials and conclusions made.
