Part of Neptune’s migratable R900® System, the R900® Gateway v3 allows utilities to keep existing assets, eliminate truck rolls, and enjoy full fixed-network data collection. Daily meter reads track consumption while allowing customer notification of leaks in hours. The new Gateway provides twice the coverage as before, and hours of backup battery power. Utilities can still use mobile or handheld collection for contingency meter reading — with no reprogramming of MIUs/encoders. Learn more at www.neptunetg.com.
Spotlight On AMR And Meters
Stopping Water Theft Using Conventional Drive-By AMR By Master Meter, Inc.
If your customer reversed their water meter for weeks would you know about it? How many years might go by, particularly with an indoor meter, before the theft is discovered? Water theft is a serious problem and occurs more often than some utilities are aware.
Benefits Derived From Automating Meter Reading By Itron
Utilities come in all shapes and sizes, but they all strive for essentially the same end result. They seek to deliver energy and water to their customers in an efficient, safe manner, while at the same time safeguarding the utility's revenue stream, minimizing expenses, and maintaining customer satisfaction.
Fixed-Network AMR: The Right Choice For The District Of Columbia By Aclara
With more than 90,000 meters delivering daily meter readings, the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority (WASA) is reaping customer service and operational benefits beyond its original expectations. When fully deployed to the planned 125,000 meter points, this will represent the largest fixed network metering installation in the water industry to date.
Flaring or otherwise not recovering biogas is a lost opportunity for cost savings and environmental benefit. U.S. EPA findings show that only a quarter of wastewater treatment facilities with anaerobic digestion use digester gas for electricity generation. If the majority of facilities with anaerobic digestion are flaring digester gas regardless of the benefits of CHP, then there are perceived and actual barriers to broader use of biogas.
When it rains, large quantities of storm water are generated in the extensive surface areas in airports. This storm water can become contaminated by kerosene, chemicals, and organic substances from the deicing of aircraft.
