One of a city’s most important pieces of critical infrastructure is its water system. With populations in cities growing, it is inevitable that water consumption will grow as well. The term “smart water” points to water and wastewater infrastructure management system. A smart water system is designed to gather meaningful and actionable data about the flow, pressure and distribution of a city’s water.

smartSmart cities encompass six important sectors that need to work in unison. These sectors are smart energy, smart integration, smart public services, smart mobility, smart buildings, and smart water. One of a city’s most important pieces of critical infrastructure is its water system. With populations in cities growing, it is inevitable that water consumption will grow as well. The term “smart water” points to water and wastewater infrastructure management system. A smart water system is designed to gather meaningful and actionable data about the flow, pressure and distribution of a city’s water.

The World Health Organization reports that the majority of the world’s population lives in a city. Making cities smarter to support growth is emerging as a key area of focus for governments and the private sector alike.  This decade, cities around the world will invest $108 billion in smart city infrastructure, such as smart meters and grids, energy-efficient buildings and data analytics, according to Navigant Research.

Smart Water Metering System aims to give consumers the information that they need to make intelligent decisions, the ability to execute those decisions and a variety of choices leading to substantial benefits they would not have enjoyed otherwise. With its robust Metering Infrastructure.

It makes easy for the franchisees to manage the utilities and help them in greatly improving the consumer service and also refining the utility operations and asset management processes. The whole distribution network can be continuously monitored real time by any specified interval reads. Reduction in overall water consumption requires a smart metering system, which enables companies to remotely cut off the water supply, in case a consumer exceeds the overdue limit.

Utilities company, derive benefits from accurate billing, easy remote monitoring, and detection and prevention of theft. Water meters are generally owned, read and maintained by a public water provider such as a city, rural water association or private water company. In some cases an owner of a mobile home park, apartment complex or commercial building may be billed by a utility based on the reading of one meter, with the costs shared among the tenants based on some sort of key (size of flat, number of inhabitants or by separately tracking the water consumption of each unit in what is called sub metering).

A city’s water and waste water distribution system must be sound and viable to maintain its growth. Water leakages are being one of the major issues which every county is facing. Smart water meters have many benefits for customers and water agencies. For customers, the systems allow them to make informed conservation decisions. The meters allow agencies to reduce labor costs, improve enforcement efforts and enable leak detection.

Automatic meter reading (AMR) is a technology that automatically collects water consumption data from a water meter device. This data is used for billing and water usage consumption analysis. AMR continually gathers data and can provide this information on a real-time basis. Usage data can be viewed at any time, and once collected, is immediately stored in a cloud server. The data is collected using Walk by or Drive by methods. In fixed network installations, a software application running on the utility operator’s server handles two way end to end communications throughout the entire network. The radio transmission operates in compliance with Federal Communications Commission regulations to avoid interference with other electronic devices.
