Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI)
The Township has upgraded customer water meters to a wireless technology (AMI) network that reads and transmits water consumption on a routine basis. So far, more than 10,500 of the 12,000 new metering systems have been scheduled or installed in homes and businesses.
About The AMI Metering system
Most residential customers have the new Neptune MACH 10® solid state ultrasonic water meter which features no moving parts, ensuring continued accuracy and performance over the life of the meter. Its high-resolution measurement accurately captures extremely low flow rates, while a rugged, lead free bronze maincase adds to its long-term performance. These meters are read in gallons, not cubic feet.
