AMR, AMI and Metering CASE STUDIES

  1. BEACON® AMA Provides Real-Time Data, Improving Customer Service And Accuracy
    12/5/2016

    With a 2,400 square mile service area and approximately 40,000 customers to serve in southeastern Illinois, EJ Water Cooperative was having difficulties scheduling the nearly 4,000-mile monthly drive to complete a meter reading cycle. The rising cost of their aging system and the need to reduce operating costs prompted the search for a new meter reading system.

  2. AMA Managed Solution Improves Efficiencies And Customer Service

    When Chris Adcock became the Executive Director at the Pittsylvania County Service Authority (PCSA) in 2013, he found an aging water system. With customer service concerns and rising costs, Chris started his search for the best water metering solution and found the BEACON® Advanced Metering Analytics (AMA) managed solution from Badger Meter.

  3. Advanced Metering Analytics System Improves Data Accuracy, Customer Service

    Bethpage Water District’s (New York) outdated water metering system led to customer service concerns, such as a slow response time for detecting leaks and insufficient data for billing inquiries.

  4. Choosing The Right Residential Water Metering Technology
    10/30/2017

    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.

  6. The Utility Of Location: How Spatial Analytics Saved A Water Company Thousands
    6/20/2018

    Today’s data driven utilities are paving the way for smart water systems through their use of location intelligence. Location influences all aspects of managing water — from protecting a sustainable supply to delivering safe drinking water. At Esri’s upcoming User Conference, which brings together more than 18,000 geographic information system (GIS) professionals from across the globe, utility companies will gather together to share successes and best practices regarding the myriad ways instituting spatial analytics technology has benefited their operations.

  7. Secret To Disinfection Monitoring For High Chlorine Residual Wastewater Applications
    8/2/2015

    Some wastewater applications require chlorine residuals greater than can be effectively monitored using DPD due to the oxidation of the Wurster dye to a colorless Imine. Such applications include industrial wastewater processes that inherently have a high chlorine demand thereby requiring a more robust monitoring method.

  8. 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.

  9. City Upgrades AMI System For Boost
    9/16/2015

    The city of Yakima services approximately 19,000 accounts within 27 square miles in the Yakima Valley. Frequent droughts, above average water loss and inaccurate meters prompted the city to search for a vendor who could provide a turnkey solution complete with a quality product line. The selected vendor also needed to have an endpoint that could withstand the extreme conditions experienced inside their meter pits including high humidity and varying temperatures.

  10. A Golden Spike In Revenue, Efficiency, And Customer Service With The R900® System
    8/20/2015

    In 2008, the public utility manager in Ogden City, Utah sent out a request for proposal on a system-wide changeout of its meters, absolute encoders, and radio frequency meter interface units (RF MIUs), with a goal of eliminating estimating and replacing all their meters with AMR technology to read year-round.
