Pittsburgh gets high-tech water meters

A magazine called Government Technology noted Pittsburgh Water & Sewer Authority’s installation of high tech water meters this week.

The new meters will allow customers to track water usage online or through email or text message updates. PWSA will spend $9.4 million to bring these wireless meters to about 82,000 customers in Pittsburgh. 

Tracking water usage can allow customers to control water consumption or alert users of potential leaks. 

“We're saving $10,000 a month, or $120,000 a year, and providing customers a better service,” PWSA spokesperson Melissa Rubin says.
