Improving Efficiency With Wireless Water Meters
The City of Inverness will begin installation of an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) system. The innovative system will replace monthly manual meter reads with a wireless system that collects multiple remote reads per day, allowing for better leak detection, increased billing accuracy and improved customer service.
The Sensus metering system supports our commitment to maintaining a high quality of life for our citizens through cost-effective, innovative programs. Advanced metering also supports our commitment to preserving and protecting our environment, reducing carbon emissions by taking meter readers off the road, enhancing our ability to quickly detect and stop leaks, and providing customers with daily information on water use so that they can improve their efforts to conserve.
Changing out all of the meters will take approximately four months. During installation, contractors working on behalf of the City of Inverness will interrupt water service for approximately 30 minutes. Before leaving the site, crews will test the new meter by running about 10 gallons of water from an exterior hose or faucet. A door-hanger will be left by PVI if special coordination is required for any properties.
Contractors will be supervised by City of Inverness staff, carry proper identification, and have successfully completed a comprehensive background check. Contractors will be wearing dark blue shirts marked with the logo "PVI" and using vehicles marked with the same logo.
The project will upgrade all existing meters in the utility with transmitters and replace older meters with new meters and transmitters utilizing the latest metering technology.
