How to track and fix leaks at energy companies
Posted On July 26, 2021
How do you know if your energy company is leaking, or if the leak is coming from a critical infrastructure project?
In an article published Monday, the Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology said it is here to help.
The institute said it has launched a website to help people understand what it means when they see a red “L” on a document.
If you see a “L,” or a red circle, it means there is a leak in that facility.
“We don’t want people to think there’s no damage to the infrastructure,” said James DeYoung, an institute associate professor.
“We want people in the public to have a better understanding of what’s going on.”
The institute’s website includes a video of a construction worker explaining the difference between a “red” and “L.”
In this case, the worker said there is damage, but not major damage.
The “L is an indication that there is something to report.”
What does a “Red” indicate?
It’s the greenish, reddish, or brown color that indicates there is an issue with the pipe.
It’s the same color as the “L”, so that means there could be more to report, DeYoung said.
He said that the “Red circle” is just a hint that a problem is happening.
That means there are more than one issue, and there may be multiple issues that need to be looked into.
He noted that while there are different ways to find a leak, they can be done in different ways.
In the video, the construction worker explains that when the pipe is damaged, a “slop” will come out.
This is a small hole that will come up and out of the pipe, and it can also cause a leak.
“What we are really trying to do is create a set of guidelines to help the public understand how they can get the information they need to know that they’re being honest with themselves,” DeYoung added.
The Institute for CERTIC, which has been helping businesses to better understand their infrastructure, is partnering with ABC News to provide more information.
In addition to the videos, the institute has released a tool that will help people identify and report problems.
The tool, called “Red Alert,” will let you search for specific problems in the video and tell you if you need to fix the problem yourself.
“People who are at home, they want to know if there’s a problem with the electrical equipment, they don’t really want to go out and look at it,” Deyoung said.
“They don’t know what it’s going to cost them.
So what we want to do, is give people the tools to do that.”
The tool is available for free on the institute’s site.ABC News’ Ben Schreckinger contributed to this report.
