Our Water Meter Replacement Progam

Sensor

The Town of Nahant has completed its water meter replacement / retrofit and automatic reading system. The project began in April 2012.

Benefits of an AMR System

  • Increase efficiency in meter reading (no longer relying on equipment that is unreliable) and eliminates estimated readings
  • Ability to obtain meter readings without entering the property
  • Allows for better tracking of unaccounted-for water because master meters and revenue meters may be read at the same time
  • Quicker detection of customer plumbing leaks by customer or the water department with daily meter readings
  • Reduction in administrative time and errors in getting meter reading data to billing software
  • Easy detection of meter tampering and identification of accounts that fluctuate from normal usage
  • Increase revenues, since older meters under-register
