Tracking water meter information.

Blog_Tracking_water_meter_information.png

The Village of Wheeling is in the process of acquiring a remote water
meter reading system that will allow village staff to read water meter
information through a computer rather than having to check the meter
manually. Each water meter wirelessly connects to one of the main towers
within the village and then the information is relayed to village
staff. The location of the towers within the coverage area affects each
individual meters signal and its ability to send information back to the
tower.

A map was put together for the bidding process showing the properties
that are owned by the village, which in turn allow the building of a
tower. Each company bidding on the job, was provided a copy of the map
allowing them to pick out where they felt the towers should be placed to
give the maximum amount of meter coverage. By using GIS, public works
was quickly able to provide maps to all interested parties to help
create a remote water meter reading system that would provide the best
meter reading capabilities.
