The Southern California city has set a city-wide water reduction goal of 20 percent. Mark Sprague, the city’s utilities manager, says the smart water network — including the FlexNet communication system, iPERL residential and OMNI commercial meters — alerts the city to high water users so it can work with them to find ways to use water more efficiently.
The Sensus FlexNet system is a long-range radio network that provides a scalable and reliable communications infrastructure that enables smart water networks and smart cities. Sensus OMNI commercial meters offer sustained precision over time, and Sensus iPERL water meters capture the lowest flows and maintain measurement accuracy for their 20-year lifetime.
Sensus is a leading company in the the smart water meter market, which an RnRMarketResearch report projects to grow at a CAGR of 14 percent by 2019.
