Tri County Regional Water upgrades to Badger Meter E-Series® Ultrasonic meters and ORION® Classic (CE) automatic meter reading (AMR) solution.

Responsible for water delivery in sections of Pope and Yell counties in Arkansas, Tri County Regional Water serves a vast and diverse land mass. Mountainous terrain, dramatic changes in elevation and rural living are hallmarks of the area stretching many miles and situated in the Ozark Mountain range. To better serve its residential customers, the utility needed an accurate and reliable meter reading system it could depend on.

Faced with high levels of water loss, meter failure and an inadequate drive-by system, Tri County Regional Water turned to Badger Meter in the summer of 2012. Recommended by trusted Arkansas-based Henard Utility Products Inc., the Badger Meter solution includes 5/8x3/4 inch E-Series Ultrasonic meters and the ORION Classic (CE) automatic meter reading (AMR) system.
