  • Aging meters
    Water meters, whether mechanical or electronic, are subject to wear and eventually lose the ability to correctly measure and record flow.
  • Non-revenue water
    The cost of water loss to US Utilities is approximately $4.9 billion per year.
  • Customer service
    Overall customer satisfaction score for water utilities is lower than those of airlines and mortgage service providers. Billing questions are among the top reasons customers contact their utility.
  • Aging workforce
    Retirements in the water sector result in staffing vacancies in utilities of up to 50% in some cases.
  • Water conservation
    Water conservation/water supply availability is #3 most important issue for utilities.
