One of the key opportunities for sustainability improvements is located in the Borough’s water system. With a leak-prone, aging system, the Borough knew it needed an upgrade to new, clean technology that would help increase productivity, improve billing accuracy and save money.
The Borough began by upgrading about 20,000 feet of water lines in an attempt to reduce breaks and improve water quality and pressure. Then, they added a smart water network solution from Sensus. This involved replacing 2,438 water meters and deploying a fixed base communication network with an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) system. The Sensus multi-application FlexNet system, coupled with Permalog leak detection, was connected to SRll and iPERL™ water meters.
