Water meter readings are collected through the same AMR system as the Electric meters, which means that the readings are the most accurate possible. The AMR system allows us to see when a customer has a leak, when it started and when the leak stopped. There are several other reports available that helps us manage our customers’ water habits, consumption changes, and meter tampering.
