By Telog Instruments, Inc.
With outdated flow-monitoring systems, the Newtown Bucks County Joint Municipal Authority (NBCJMA) faced time-consuming communication gaps between the various sites of its large, decentralized sewer system. After bringing in engineering consulting firm Gannett Fleming, they installed remote telemetry units (RTUs) with solar power, eliminating the need for AC power or field visits to change batteries.
