São Paulo, Brazil and Luton, U.K. — (METERING.COM) — August 15, 2012 – Companhia de Saneamento de Minas Gerais (Copasa), Brazil’s second largest water utility, has selected Elster to supply up to 110,000 S120 single jet water meters over the next eight months, the company has announced.

Copasa will deploy the meters to provide more accurate water usage measurement, to improve revenue generation, and to reduce water leakage.
