AMR, AMI and Metering CASE STUDIES

  1. Township Water Authority Uses Ultrasonic Clamp-On Flow Meters To Avoid Surcharges For Exceeding Peak Limits
    11/27/2015

    A suburban township in the upper Midwest U.S. buys their drinking water from a major municipal water district. The municipality has many customers and has implemented contracts with each of its wholesale customers that limit the peak flows and the time of day in which they may occur. If the wholesale customer exceeds the limit, they are assessed significant surcharges.

  2. Turbiwell Comparision Report Before And After Upgrade
    7/29/2015

    Russellville water treatment plant is a surface water plant using traditional clarification, filtration, and treatment. The plant historically has used traditional contact turbidimeters that employ tungsten lamps that required quarterly maintenance, but replaced their turbidimeters with Swan Turbiwell turbidimeters in 2012. Read the full report for a comparison of the performance of the Swan Turbiwell to the previously installed turbidimeters. 

  3. Berkeley County Water & Sanitation Takes Big Leap Forward With Big Data From Sensus
    4/19/2017

    Berkeley County Water & Sanitation (BCWS) has moved from manual meter reads to remote readings that happen with the push of a button. The result? Massive amounts of data but no clear view into how to use it to benefit its more than 24,000 customers and better plan for tomorrow.

  4. New Smart Water Network Provides Perfect Harmony At Nashville Metro Water Services
    4/19/2017

    Providing clean drinking water to its citizens since the early 1800s, Nashville’s city government has a deep-rooted history in the water industry. Today, Nashville Metro Water Services (MWS) serves more than 191,000 customers in Nashville and surrounding counties.

  5. Combining The Right Metering Technology With The Right Software Drives Accurate Data
    11/6/2013

    The City of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, had been using a drive-by Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) system to read all of its meters since 2010, but it wasn’t realizing the full benefits with its existing system. A Badger Meter AMR solution was chosen based on its strong track record for increased savings, more accurate measurement, and customer service improvements, supported by sophisticated data analysis and leak detection features. With the new system, the city now sees greater revenue, reduced water loss, and improved efficiency.

  6. New Meters And AMR System Deliver Outstanding Revenue Savings And Improved Efficiencies In Ozark Mountain Region
    5/7/2014

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

  7. Wingo Water & Sewer Upgrades To ORION® Fixed Network (SE) System From Badger Meter
    3/10/2014

    Located in rural Kentucky, the small town of Wingo may seem like an unlikely candidate to become the first city in the state to employ a complete Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) system. However, when it came time to upgrade its meter reading system, the city wanted a comprehensive water utility solution and chose the ORION Fixed Network (SE) system from Badger Meter.

  8. AMI Steps Up Efficiency Without Feet On The Street
    12/6/2013

    Begun in 1882 as a station along the Missouri, Kansas, & Texas (MKT or Katy) Railroad, Hewitt, Texas encompasses 6.86 square miles south of Waco.

  9. Following Ultrasonic Success, Master Meter Introduces Sonata
    6/17/2016

    A common drive among inventors is the hope of building “a better mouse trap.” There may be products that satisfy their users every day, but are crying out for improvement. One company has found that opportunity in water meters, taking a technology that has worked in the industrial space and offering it for the first time for residential applications.

  10. E-Coder® And R900® RF Help Data Go Deeper In Ventura County
    8/21/2015

    The majority of the water in the city of Simi Valley, California, is provided by Ventura County Waterworks District 8, serving approximately 26,000 metered connections — 22,000 of which are now read by Neptune’s R900® System.
