Background:


CRW currently gathers water usage readings from meters through a radio-read system. A transceiver (MXU) unit with each meter allows CRW employees to drive a vehicle throughout the distribution system and collect consumption readings on a monthly basis. The antiquated meters and reading system were installed in 2001.

Project Purpose:

Replace the outdated water meter reading system with a new automated system.

Project Summary:

Evaluate various equipment vendors to provide a new automated meter reading system eliminating the need to drive a vehicle throughout the system. Installation of new meters and transmitters will occur over a 3-year period and will be contracted through the selected vendor. Among other benefits, customers consumption data will be collected more frequently and accessible with the capability to alert CRW of leaks or abnormally high usage.


The project will be financed by PENNVEST.
