txH2O highlight: Giving water an upgrade

More cities are using smart technology to save natural resources, money and time. The article Giving water an upgrade in the summer 2019 issue of txH2O magazine describes how smart cities are using different types of electronic sensors and technology to collect data, allowing the more efficient management of assets and resources.

According to the article, the cities of Lubbock and Arlington have installed advanced metering infrastructure, or AMI, replacing manually read meters with digital meters that record water consumption data as often as every hour, providing water utilities and their customers with data about water use.

AMI technology is beneficial for detecting water leaks in customer homes as well as water distribution pipes, especially when combined with other technologies like permanent acoustical correlating technology, a type of leak detection using sound waves.
