How Does it Work?
The new water metering system incorporates an off-the-shelf, battery-operated radio transmitter onto the water meter.
The water meter, with its integrated radio, transmits a relatively weak radio frequency signal. The City meter reader drives by the property with a special receiver. Data consisting of your unique meter number and the digits of your meter reading are transmitted to our receiver. We use those meter readings in our billing software to generate your water bill. If we cannot get that data, an error code transmits. No personal information is transmitted.
