Smart Meters to be Installed for Toledo’s Water Customers
City of Toledo Department of Public Utilities water customers should soon have fewer headaches over their water bills. The department will replace 116,000 analog water meters with smart meters across residences and businesses beginning in July.
Also known as advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), the new smart meters will enable automated transmission of individual customers’ water meter readings, providing them with accurate, near-real-time data on their individual water usage. This technology will help customers gain deeper insight and understanding of how and when they use water.
Once the accompanying customer service portal is online, customers will have the ability to see their water usage as it happens, which means they can set alert notifications and manage their water usage — and budgets — better than ever before.
