How it works

leadCAST Predict helps you accelerate the classification of unknown service lines and prioritize field verifications through advanced service line material predictions powered by machine learning. leadCAST Predict is an additional feature of leadCAST LCRR compliance management solution. leadCAST Predict uses three main elements.


Combine your service line inventory with parcel and census data to predict unknown materials. Our machine-learning experts use statistical techniques to prepare, clean, and improve your data to support optimal modeling.


There is no one-size-fits-all modeling approach for predicting service line material. Our machine learning experts evaluate the performance and reliability of many different types of machine learning models to select the best fit for your data.


Service line material predictions are viewable in an interactive dashboard. A final report describes how the machine learning model was built and tested, so that non-technical stakeholders can understand how the model works and have confidence in the model's predictions.

Why use leadCAST Predict?

The reality is that water utilities just don’t have the financial and staffing resources to verify every single service line. The challenges such as preparing for impending cybersecurity standards or finding staff, add to the pressure most utilities face every day. It can take years to complete field verifications and our communities deserve better than that. leadCAST Predict exists for one purpose only: to help you identify lead more quickly and accurately, so that you can remove and replace lines expeditiously.

Domain expertise quality checks

Using quality data and the right modeling approach, we can successfully predict service line materials with accuracy comparable to physical verification methods.

Our data scientists work with subject matter experts to understand and explain dominant model features, and optimize model performance.

An easy-to-follow predictions report

Following model configuration, our data science team prepares a report narrating how the model for your particular system was built and tested. The report provides performance metrics for understanding the accuracy and reliability of the model.

Dynamic map and Dashboard

leadCAST enables the user to choose from three different map views showing the model prediction results. These views include a zoomed-out view for a high-level view of where potential lead might exist, a detailed view showing specific neighborhoods or streets, and a street view. You’ll also have access to an exportable report that summarizes the results.

Inspection optimizer

Evaluate whether existing field verifications are truly representative of your entire water system or if additional verifications are needed. Gain a better understanding of which properties to inspect to obtain a representative sample for unbiased and reliable predictive modeling.
