The Metropolitan District deploys Itron automatic metering technology

Liberty Lake, Wash., August 19, 2009 — The Metropolitan District (MDC) will deploy Itron’s mobile automatic meter reading system. The efficiencies gained by using Itron’s AMR technology will allow the MDC to significantly reduce estimated bills and further enhance its relationships with customers.

The MDC plans to target 30,000 metering endpoints in the Connecticut towns of East Hartford, Farmington, Rocky Hill and West Hartford. The MDC is also implementing MV-RS, Itron’s data collection software for collection of meter data and mobile route management.

Itron mobile AMR systems, key to its ChoiceConnect AMR data collection suite, use a vehicle equipped with a portable radio transceiver and laptop computer to gather consumption and tamper data from water endpoints.
