TN town to modernize water distribution system with advanced smart water solution

In an effort to modernize its water distribution system, the Water & Sewer Department of Murfreesboro, Tenn., has selected an advanced smart water solution from Itron.

LIBERTY LAKE, WA, Aug. 6, 2015 -- In an effort to modernize its water distribution system, the Water & Sewer Department (MWSD) of Murfreesboro, Tenn., has selected an advanced smart water solution from Itron, a technology and services company dedicated to the resourceful use of energy and water.

Provider of water to nearly 100,000 customers, MWSD will use the solution to more effectively and efficiently manage the delivery and use of water through automation, analytics and leak detection.

Itron's smart water solution enables MWSD to take advantage of detailed meter data and analytics to support enhanced customer service, revenue protection, consumption forecasting, flow analysis, and district metering. Utility customers will have online access to their accounts and consumption information, helping them better understand their water usage to reduce the amount they use and save money before they get their bill.

With Itron's leak detection technology, MWSD will acoustically listen to its distribution system to pinpoint leaks, enabling MWSD to better monitor distribution lines for leaks and helping reduce non-revenue water, associated costs and potential service disruptions caused by major leak events.

"The city of Murfreesboro looks forward to benefiting from Itron's smart water solution, which will help us enhance customer service with early leak notification and make water management more efficient through remote, rather than manual, meter reading," said Darren Gore, MWSD director. "The solution will enable many benefits for MWSD and our customers, garnering a high return on investment."
