Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI)

Now a Better Water Meter

Faster, better, and accurate – the ACC Public Utilities Department is changing over from manual to an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) System that requires replacement or retrofit of all current customer meters.
Why is the metering system being changed?
This new automated system is more efficient, accurate, and cost effective than manual meter reading

Benefits for our customers:
  • Highly accurate data collection decreases the possibility of incorrect manual meter readings,
  • Allows us to provide you with timely information on your water use and cost,
  • Water leaks can be identified in a very timely manner, reducing wasted water and helping to prevent water bill increases due to leaks,
  • Meters are read hourly instead of once a month,
  • Customer service representatives can initiate new accounts, close existing accounts & address billing questions far more quickly and efficiently,
  • Low-power radio signals transmit information from your water meter without staff having to open the meter box or step onto the your property.
  • After the entire system is up and running, an online portal will assist customers in managing and monitoring their water consumption.
How does it work?
Low-power radio signals record, store, and transmit information from your water meter to transmitters mounted on existing towers, water tanks, or utility poles.
