Subsidence can cause gas and water pipelines to break right where they enter houses. In the Netherlands, satellite data are used to monitor gas pipelines at affordable costs.
Satellite images show hot spots where ground movement is taking place. It thus allows a targeted replacement programme: the maintenance strategy has now become focused on areas of higher risk. Instead of replacing pipes and connections in a single district pipes serving individual houses or streets can be replaced.
