Just a few miles from the South Carolina coast, the town of Mount Pleasant exudes the southern charm and rich historical resonance that typify the “Lowcountry.” And though this may conjure up images of laid-back residents sipping sweet tea on their porch swings, the reality is a little different for the town’s water utility.
The new year rang in with a bitter, two-week cold snap followed by snowy conditions throughout South Carolina. Chesterfield County experienced nine days in a row of frigid temperatures, with the daytime high never breaking 37 degrees, and a wintry mix that delivered more than five inches of snow to the southern part of the county.
Sensus FlexNet EasyLink™ Mobile Communications is a new solution for utilities that will increase read rates and decrease drive time. The portable, radio-based device easily acquires data from electric, gas and water meters.
Water utilities are under constant pressure to run more efficiently, often with minimal staff. Utility managers must find ways to save time and money, while continuing to provide excellent customer service. A common area of inefficiency is found within water service shutoff and turn-on events. So how can utilities improve business operations in this area?
Water utilities face many challenges including aging infrastructure, constrained resources and revenue shortfalls. Most utilities use various technological resources to manage their assets and increase efficiency. Resources may include Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), Geographic Information Systems (GIS), hydraulic models, asset management systems, network sensors, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems and billing databases. Unfortunately, those resources are often managed in “silos.”
The 2017 Atlantic hurricane season, which ends November 30, will be remembered as one of the top ten most active in recorded history.
Accurate and dependable water metering is more important than ever for today’s water utilities. Although utility managers are tasked with meeting tight budgets, it is imperative for utilities to invest in their water metering infrastructure. When making meter selection decisions, utilities must consider several factors. These include service size, application, and expected flow rates. There is no “one type fits all” application when it comes to meter technologies.
