STAR Network System Stands Up To Hurricane SandySource: Aclara
The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is the largest public water utility in North America, serving more than 800,000 customers and nine million residents.
Beginning in 2009, DEP installed Aclara’s STAR Network technology across New York City’s five boroughs, providing a wireless meter reading solution for the city. By March 2012, installation was 95% complete.
When Hurricane Sandy struck in October 2012, the system was under pressure to perform effectively.
