AMI Project

The Town has authorized the replacement of its public water utility meters as they have reached or exceeded useful life and may no longer be recording water consumption accurately. In place of the Town’s current manual-read system that collects one meter read every 30 days, the Town will implement a cellular based advanced meter reading system that will collect 720 reads a month. This new technology is referred to as Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and will provide exponential benefits to the Town and customers. Customers will have direct access to detailed usage information and the opportunity to receive alert notifications for water leaks and high consumption to proactively capture leaks. Utility staff will have access to enhanced system reports and detailed trending data to deliver improved customer service support and expedited response time.
