Cyclical water shortages are a challenge that Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) takes seriously. As California’s sixth-largest retail water agency, they embrace the opportunity to balance water use efficiency with meeting the needs of a diverse and growing customer base.
EMWD deployed the two-way Sensus FlexNet® communication network as part of a meter replacement program to enable remote monitoring and management.
The utility now manages more than 158,000 meters, including iPERL® residential and OMNI™ commercial meters. In just a short time, they’ve improved their leak detection capabilities and enhanced daily interactions with customers.
