Nearly 4.7 billion gallons of water were saved in 2013 alone through installation of Badger Meter water utility solutions.

What is not measured cannot be managed. Metering makes water consumption more visible to the user, raising the level of understanding of usage patterns and highlighting the need to conserve. The American Water Works Association estimates that installing a water meter will reduce a consumer’s usage by approximately 20 percent. Given that the average U.S. household uses 300 gallons of water per day (EPA), metering has an enormous impact on total water consumption.
