AMI improves accuracy by eliminating the potential for human error in manual meter reading. It will also help by immediately identifying any irregularities in water usage, such as leaks.
In the future, customers will have access to the AMI web portal which allows easy access to information about your water consumption. This will include the ability to compare current usage to previous periods and set email and text alerts to achieve conservation goals. The schedule for the Smart Meter Customer Portal rollout is still being developed and the City will notify customers once it’s available for use.
