New Water Meter System

Sensus Water MeterThe smart water meter system is an integrated system of smart meters, communications networks, and data management tools that enable two-way communication between utilities and customers.

The new system will also include the rollout of a customer portal, that will allow customers to see and track their usage in real-time.
