It can be easy for many water utilities to look at the technologies they are using and presume that things are going well enough. While waiting until technology fails to perform upgrades/replacements is an invitation for disaster, water utilities work on tight margins. As such, there is rarely surplus funding available to upgrade for the sake of upgrading. This is particularly true for meters. The more endpoints or other measurement locations, the more costly it is to upgrade. In addition, replacing meters can be a time-consuming, labor-intensive process.

Yet as climate change-induced issues of water scarcity become more common throughout the U.S., utilities are under more and more pressure to ensure that every drop of water treated and pumped is accounted for (and billed for) – a challenge that can be addressed by upgrading to the most advanced metering technology available.

So, what is a water utility to do? How can you address the needs of climate change today while future-proofing the system to make upgrades easier and more cost effective?
