The City of Belmont has awarded a contract to Fortiline Waterworks for the upgrade of the City of Belmont water utility meters utilizing the Mi.Net™ advanced water metering solution through Mueller Systems. Through the selection of an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) two-way communication technology, the City will be able to automate its meter reading process, provide improved customer service, increase billing accuracy, reduce leaks to promote resource conservation, and improve utility operational efficiencies through real-time meter reading data.
The City is installing these new meters to replace existing manually read meters as they have reached or exceeded useful life. Many of the City’s meters have been in use for over 15 years. The AMI system uses wireless and Radio Frequency (RF) technology to transmit usage data from individual meters to collector points installed on City-owned equipment for billing and customer account management. The transmissions sent by the meters to the management and billing systems are secured by encryption and contain no customer information.
“The City Council has been planning for this change for a long time, and we are excited to be able to use this proven technology to provide more efficient services to our water customers,” said Mayor Charlie Martin. “Another great benefit to this new system is that our water customers can check their water usage any time, not just when they get their monthly bill. They will know if they have a leak in time to fix it and save money on their bill.”
