Smart water metering deployment completed at Madison water utility

Sponsored by


LIBERTY LAKE, WA, Jan. 8, 2014 -- The city of Madison, Wisconsin's water utility (Madison Water Utility), has completed implementation of a new smart water metering solution.

Supplied by Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITRI), the technology is a key part of Project H20, the city's program to automate the collection and analysis of water meter reads. The solution allows Madison Water Utility to effectively manage conservation initiatives, improve metering accuracy and operate more efficiently.

Madison Water Utility, which serves 235,000 residents, is already seeing clear benefits from the system, including improved leak detection that is saving customers water and money. Since the project started, the utility has sent out 1,106 continuous-use letters to homeowners alerting them to possible leaks. Madison is also leveraging hourly usage information to detect possible leaks, improve customer service and quickly resolve bill inquiries. In the next several months, customers will be able to track their daily consumption online, and in mid-2014, the utility will transition to monthly billing.

As a part of Project H20, Madison deployed the Itron advanced network and more than 66,000 Itron water communication modules. The solution provides an energy efficient, accurate and cost-effective way for Madison Water Utility to read water meters and eliminates the need for a water meter reader to visit consumers' premises.
