Truckee Meadows to deploy 110,000 automated water meters


In the US, Truckee Meadows Water Authority has selected Sensus to reduce non-revenue water as well as improve customer services.

The utility is deploying Sensus’ FlexNet communication network and some 110,000 smart water meters to automate water metering and leak detection.

The project will help the city to improve consumer water conservation and efficiency.

Pat Nielson, director of distribution maintenance and generation, said: “The system will allow us to achieve outstanding read rates across our water meters with less infrastructure, meaning fewer base stations and access points needed than with other systems.

 “Thanks to the flexibility of our smart utility network, we can roll things out in a much more methodical way.

“We’ll be able to use our system to advance in a way that makes a lasting impact for our customers and strengthens our role as responsible stewards of our region’s water resources.”

The project should be completed within the next three to five years.
