At a time when water rates increase at twice the inflation rate, and most water systems experience rising water loss due to aging infrastructure, advanced metering systems have become an important tool for the financial stability of water utilities. The implementation of a smart metering infrastructure requires significant support maintenance, technology and software expertise as well as funding to cover the up-front installation costs of the advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) and smart meters. As a result, smart metering systems for water infrastructure are often out of reach for small and medium-sized communities.
USG Metering Asset Management Program was designed with those water distribution systems in mind. Our program is a customized solution that provides and implements an AMI system and smart meter services, integrating them into your existing water distribution infrastructure for billing and data collection. As part of our program, we can also provide maintenance and supervision of the smart metering infrastructure over the life of the system, to ensure you reap all the operational benefits: increased revenue, reduction of nonrevenue water, and better service to your customers.
