The Broader Value Proposition: Adopting Smart Meters Ahead Of New Construction

Source: Master Meter, Inc.

Smart water meters as part of larger advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) provide substantial benefits for water utilities when it comes to established distribution systems. The technology produces granular consumption information to help diagnose system leaks in aging pipes in the system and immediately corrects inaccuracies of aged meters, both of which are known to cause a significant financial strain over the long haul. This information can also be used to perform predictive analytics to preemptively replace infrastructure, when and where needed, to help stave off costly ill-timed damage and related losses.
