The solution, which includes Trimble Unity software and the Trimble R2 GPS, also provides officials the means to be proactive with inspecting for lead service lines.
Many water utilities continue to evaluate the costs and benefits of investing in smart metering to reduce operational costs and help recover revenue from water losses. Smart metering can also provide customers with more granular consumption data to help them protect their property from water damage and better manage their water expenses.
Most utilities understand they have a nonrevenue water problem, but few know how to deal with it correctly. Start by learning more about how the issue affects your utility and what options are available.
“Smart city” technologies are on the minds of cities everywhere today. There’s no shortage of networks, end-point devices, software applications, and services to help cities upgrade infrastructure to conserve water, save energy, reduce costs, and improve efficiency.
When speaking with anyone who works for a water utility their priorities quickly become apparent. Water quality and reliability, intractably related to each other, form the core mission of any water utility. Without maintaining water quality and safety, customers may become sick or worse.
Santa Fe, the capital of New Mexico, has a scarce and precious water supply. In 2013, Santa Fe’s Water Division became aware its drive-by meter reading system was failing. The Water Division implemented the BEACON Advanced Metering Analytics (AMA) managed solution with ORION Cellular endpoints and E-Series Ultrasonic meters from Badger Meter.
As South Africa commemorates National Water Week from March 17 to 23 to highlight the scarcity of this vital resource, municipalities and utilities around the country are increasingly turning to technology to help them with both conservation and expanding accessibility to more communities.
As adoption of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) becomes more widespread, its appeal to cyber-attackers will undoubtedly increase, and addressing security vulnerabilities across layers — and by different stakeholders — must be taken into account from the outset.
Did you ever have a paper route or go door-to-door selling items to your neighbors for a charitable cause in your younger years? Remember the house with the big dog? Or the overgrown yard? Maybe even the dark house at the end of the lane that the spooky old woman known to all as “the witch” lived in?
According to population projections from the U.S. Census Bureau, millennials are expected to become the nation's largest living adult generation by 2019. 37 percent of millennials were homeowners in 2015 and this number continues to rise, making them a significant fraction of a utilities' customer base.
Now available for use on all current Mueller Systems positive displacement meters in 5/8” through 2” sizes, the ME-8 utilizes heat treated tempered, glass lens and corrosion resistant copper can to house the register light tubes, electronics, self-lubricating gearing, and drive magnet. The register delivers extraordinary functionality and value when paired with the latest metrology and AMR/AMI solutions available from Mueller Systems.
Workbench is Seeq’s application for engineers engaged in diagnostic, descriptive, and predictive analytics with process manufacturing data.
Using the latest in Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) design science, our engineers crushed existing performance benchmarks largely left untouched by other manufacturers for more than a century.
420 RDM enables utilities to remotely manage water services through the Mi.Net® Mueller Infrastructure Network for Utilities--Mueller Systems' fixed 2-way AMI system--or from the safety of their vehicles.
Positive displacement water meter with Sensus® electronic register+™.
SR II meters consist of three basic components: maincase, measuring chamber and sealed register. Maincases are made of Bismuth BiAlloy CDA89836 or EnviroBrass™ II C89520 with externally-threaded spuds. Registers are housed in a bonnet of synthetic polymer.
