Advanced Metering Infrastructure

Advanced Metering Infrastructure

Advanced Metering Infrastructure (called AMI) is an integrated system of equipment, communications, and information management systems for utilities to remotely collect customer water usage data in real time. AMI provides improved system reliability and future operational efficiencies.

AMI uses radio-based technology to read water meters, which eliminates the need for manual meter reads.

The data gathered through the meters can also be relayed to customers in order to give them more insight into their water usage. This can be a powerful tool for finding leaks in real time (before they run up a high water bill), as well as help to inform customers about what they can do to conserve water in their homes.

The PWSB has been meeting with multiple meter technology companies in order to assess which system would suit our needs best. We are hoping to begin rolling out this project in 2022.
