Smart Metering

Traditional water meters are read monthly or bi-monthly by a meter reader and a water bill is generated from this manual reading of the meter. "Smart" meters can be read remotely and more frequently, providing instant access to water consumption information for both customers and water utilities. Sometimes "smart" meters are referred to as "time-of-use" meters, because in addition to measuring the volume consumed, they also record the date and time that the water consumption occurs.
