HARNESSING ADVANCED METERING INFRASTRUCTURE TECH SO WATER UTILITIES CAN RECLAIM LOST WATER REVENUE

Data and Analytics to Manage Water Distribution Networks

Dripping faucets, running toilets and other household water leaks waste about a trillion gallons of water each year, according to the EPA. Almost three times that amount is lost before it even reaches homes through dilapidated pipes and factors such as improperly sized meters and theft. These losses represent $2.6 billion lost revenue problems for U.S. water utilities each year. How to resolve it?

Aclara powers the data-driven information and advanced applications that utilities need to improve services and manage water distribution networks. We help utilities access the data and analytics for insight into resources and take action to improve systems and recover revenues.

HYDROPRO SOLUTIONS IS A PROUD CHANNEL PARTNER TO ACLARA FOR THE ACLARA STAR AMI SOLUTION

Aclara’s smart infrastructure solutions turn challenges into opportunities:

Leak detection and mitigation

Build a more responsive infrastructure, and pinpoint and respond to potential problems before they happen.

Pressure monitoring

Control pressure and keep systems operating smoothly with real-time data.

Sewer overflow

Prevent sewer overflows – and liabilities – before they happen using Aclara’s sensing technology.

Customer Care and Billing

Eliminate estimated reads, provide customers with consistent billing, smooth revenue collection, and reduce calls to customer service representatives.

Today, AMI (advanced metering infrastructure) is as much about getting the data you need to power new applications and services as it is about meter reading. It’s about using data-driven information to leverage your AMI investment to improve existing services and manage your Water/Gas/Electric metering and distribution system(s). It’s about data that’s easy to access and analytics that provide insight about resources and revenues. HydroPro Solutions is your Aclara STAR provider for AMI networks consisting of water, gas and electric.
