Hanchurch Reservoir, UK
The Hanchurch Service Reservoir stores food-grade water for human consumption and is made of precast concrete walls. It therefore has many wall joints that present a bacteriological risk in the long term, especially because the backfill is placed on the outer walls of the reservoir.

The leakage detection is based on two methods: the Gradient Method and the Heat-Pulse-Method.
