  2. Smart Water Solution Delivers Cost Savings And Improved Efficiency For Multi-Service Utilities
    5/8/2015

    City Utilities of Springfield, MO, a multiservice utility delivering electricity, natural gas, and water services to more than 106,000 customers, needed a way to provide timely data about consumption and efficiency to customers across its three different service offerings. While existing technology offered visibility into gas and electricity consumption for the utility and its customers, the options for managing water usage were limited.

    6/27/2016

    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.

  4. Utility Improves Data Accuracy, Customer Service With Advanced Metering Analytics
    12/26/2013

    Bethpage Water District’s (New York) outdated water metering system led to customer service concerns, such as a slow response time for detecting leaks and insufficient data for billing inquiries. By installing new meters and advanced metering analytics software, the district increased visibility into its operations, resulting in greater revenue and improved customer service.

  5. The Village Of Frankfort Awarded For Operational Efficiencies Achieved Through The Mi.Net™ System And Meter Replacement
    12/20/2012

    Most recently, Frankfort Village officials decided to replace its water and electric meters and implement an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) network to increase the operational efficiencies of its water and electric infrastructure in ways that would help improve employee safety, water and energy conservation and customer service while also reducing operational costs.

  6. BEACON AMA Managed Solution Helps Provide Great Water and Great Customer Service
    3/23/2017

    Situated along the Arkansas River and Lake Dardanelle in the heart of the Arkansas River Valley, Russellville, Arkansas is known for having plentiful amounts of high quality, fresh water.

  7. The 450 MHz Band: Security, Reach, And Reliability For Smart Water Metering
    7/14/2015

    Since the early 1980s, the 900 MHz frequency band has been widely used for wireless communications in consumer, business, and municipal applications.

  8. Harnessing Advanced Analytics For Water Balancing, Meter Trending And Meter Right-Sizing
    6/20/2014

    Water utility managers today face a conundrum. The American Water Works Association (AWWA) recommends a water utility strive for non-revenue water loss at 10-15 percent, but managers know that many systems lose as much as 50 percent. Discovering where these losses occur is difficult.

  9. 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. Read the full case study to learn more.

  10. Evaluating Total Cost Of Ownership Models When Choosing Advanced Metering And Communications Networks
    8/24/2016

    This white paper describes how utilities can apply TCO evaluation, which takes into account on-going operations costs, replacement and lifecycle costs and personnel, as well as initial capital investment, to get a more complete picture of what systems will actually cost over time. These TCO calculations prove that point-to-multipoint fixed-network solutions can provide the best TCO of any competitive system, including manual, drive-by or mesh fixed-network solutions.
