FB MUD 151 has completed smart meter installation in Firethorne with the assistance of Inframark, the operator for the district.

Smart meters are a valuable upgrade to the infrastructure of the district, both for residents and district operations.

SMART METERS FAQ:

  1. What is a smart meter?
    A smart meter is an electronic, digital meter that replaces older mechanical meters to measure water usage at the home. The added benefits include mobile and web app integration, leak alerts, and high-usage alerts. Older, mechanical meters have a tendency to wear out and can face issues after 1M gallons, and smart meters help address this problem.

  3. How do smart meters save residents and the District money?
    Having a smart meter allows for up to the hour (and in some cases, faster) reading to the app, providing leak and high usage alerts to residents. Further, smart meters allow the District operator to read the meters remotely or via radio signal, cutting down read times and saving the District on personnel costs.
