Smart water meters upgrades will provide benefits to residents, commercial and to the City (rate payers). These upgraded meters will bring efficiency and information to the user, allowing you to make informed decisions about your water use.
Property owners will have accurate on demand water usage information, with this information accessible from anywhere you have an internet connection (this feature will not be immediately available). Estimate billing will become a thing of the past, and no more adjusted billing because of inacurate estimates. With smart water meters you will no longer have to read your own meter to phone or mail in your usage, and that means no more having to squeeze into a tight space to read your meter.
Smart water meters will reduce the number of City of North Battleford vehicles driving around the city, allowing for savings in fleet costs, improved staff efficiency, reducing fuel expenses and reducing our carbon footprint. Troubleshooting water issues will be accelerated, reducing the waste of water.
