Meter Data Management & AquaAlerts (ElectSolve)
Meter Data Management City Of Georgetown (TEXAS) deployed the nation’s first AMR/MDM system for both electric and water meters in the mid ‘90s.
AMR Auto Meter Reading Old SystemThe original ElectSolveMDM is being upgraded toElectSolve’s uCentraOperational DataManagement System(ODMS) to maximizebusiness operations witheasy access to criticalmeter and utility systemdata from operationalsystems: AMI (Advance MeterInfrastructure) AMR (Automated MeterReads) CIS (Customer InformationSystem) SCADA (Supervisory Controland Data Acquisition) OMS (OutageManagement System) GIS (GeographicInformation System).
Water Conserva5on Pilot 2009 Ø Peak demand for treated water is at capacity (2008)§ Current capacity is 27 million gallons per day (MGD)§ Average day demand for 2008 was 10 MGD§ Peak demand for 2008 was 28 MGDØ Peak demand is caused by landscape irrigation
Data collected Ø Daily water usageØ Monthly water usageØ Historical water usageØ Irrigation area (GIS)Ø Irrigation controller settings
With AquaAlerts, thecustomers decide theamount of water useafter which they will bealerted. For instance ifthey wish to be e-mailed after they haveused 10,000 gallons ofwater in a single billingmonth> Once they use10,000 gallons, theywill be alert with a e-mail letting them know.
With AquaAlerts and GIS systems working together we are able to see High use area (GIS Map) (AquaAlerts Site) This map show some of arecustomers that are taking part of the AquaMessenger System
IrrigationAudit • Tune ups and renovations of home sprinklers greatly improve water coverage. • New technologies will likely result in improved water management. • An irrigation audit can point to where water savings can be achieved.
