What are the advantages of the new water meters?
The wireless reading utilizes a few antennas strategically placed existing buildings or towers to collect water service data directly from the meters and send it to a central location for processing. This allows the city’s Utility Department staff more time to address necessary water system maintenance and water-quality protection tasks. Radio read provides key functions such as more accurate consumption readings, daily and monthly usage charts, 24-hour leak detection, high/low consumption alerts, and alarms for cut wires and backflow conditions. These features will enable the city to better manage its water system and provide customers with superior customer service.
