AMI to help Ohio city automate meter reading-to-billing process

Sponsored by

CLEVELAND, OHIO, Dec. 20, 2012 -- The City of Maumee, Ohio will upgrade its water system with Mueller Systems' state-of-the-art advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) network. Mueller Systems is a leading provider of innovative water infrastructure products and services and technologically advanced metering systems for water, electric and gas systems.

Mueller Systems will provide the City with the Mi.Net® Mueller Infrastructure Network for Utilities -- an advanced two-way AMI network that will automate the City's meter reading-to-billing process by linking its meters, distribution sites and control devices in a single data network. According to Joe Camp, Service Director for the City of Maumee, its decision to implement the Mi.Net System was driven by its ability to help the City's Water Department automate the collection of meter readings, provide customers with a better understanding of their water bills and identify leaks that are responsible for losing treated water.

"AMI will enable us to collect metering data in the office and receive alerts of potential leaks in our water system and on our customers' property," said Camp. "The Mi.Net System's consumer portal also gives us the ability to strengthen relationships with our customers by helping them better understand how their water consumption affects their water bill."

The Mi.Net System provides on-demand meter readings, e-mail alerts and alarms based upon near real-time information, as well as the ability for utilities to better manage their water resources and electric resources through on-going access to customer data and information. Its web-based consumer portal -- Mi.Data™ -- enables consumers to view their current and historic water consumption levels online and set budget and conservation goals.

In addition to implementing the Mi.Net System, the City will replace all residential water meters in its service area with Mueller Systems' Hersey® 400 Series Bronze Positive Displacement meters. It will also replace all of its compound water meters with HbMAG -- Mueller Systems' magnetic flow meter that is designed to accurately measure water flow with minimal head pressure loss.
