IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

A novel aspect of the Waternomics project is to apply Fault Detection and Diagnostics (FDD) to building water networks in order to identify faults (leaks, malfunctioning equipment, inefficient operation etc.). FDD is a measurement science which has traditionally been used in buildings for Heating Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) systems to identify and rectify faults at the earliest possible stage and thus reduce maintenance costs, increase efficiency and result in energy savings of between 10 and 30%. To date, these FDD tools have not been applied systematically to building water infrastructure. This Waternomics project aims to develop and implement FDD systems, in a number of large scale pilots; (i) a municipal water based demonstration in the National University of Ireland, Galway engineering building and a school in Galway City (both in Ireland) (ii) a corporate operator in Linate airport, Milan, Italy and (iii) domestic users in Thermi, Greece. This paper specifically describes the standard based methodology to be used in applying FDD to a building, which has been developed thus far from the NUI Galway Engineering pilot site.
