Cleveland, N.C., November 17, 2011 — The city of Greenville, Miss., selected Mueller Systems to upgrade its water system with an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) network and new water smart meters.
Mueller Systems is a subsidiary of Mueller Water Products, Inc., a North American provider of water infrastructure products and services, and offers a full line of residential, fire line and commercial meters, AMI and automatic meter reading (AMR) systems and related products that optimize the delivery and use of water and energy.
Mueller Systems will provide the city of Greenville with The Mi.Net Mueller Infrastructure Network for Utilities — an advanced two-way AMI network — as well as Mueller Systems’ Hersey water meters for about 13,500 service connections.
The municipal-owned utility that provides water services to more than 36,000 people throughout Greenville is scheduled to begin installing The Mi.Net System and water meters in November 2011.
The Mi.Net System enables utilities to improve operational efficiencies and customer service by fully automating the meter reading-to-billing process and linking meters, distribution sites and control devices in a single data network. Benefits provided by the Mi.Net System include on-demand meter readings, e-mail alerts and alarms based upon near real-time information as well as the ability for utilities to better manage their water and electric resources through on-going access to custom data and information.
