"The first generation still required someone to physically check each meter. The second generation was automated, but required setting up towers similar to cell phone towers, he said. This latest generation is faster, more accurate and more efficient, Halepaska said."
So tell me more about the latest version of these meters, if you have any clue. Faster, more accurate and more efficient doesn't speak to how these things operate, just words for print.
Jiggler,I would plan on seeing a small... "Service & Processing fee" on your bill in order to cover the cost of saving files on a computer and whatever else they can dream up. LOL!
How many man hours does $ 8.3 million dollars represent and is there really a cost savings when you spend nearly 10 million dollars on the system?
Since this is a done deal, I am assuming the cost of the reading is already figured into my monthly bill so will I no longer be billed for this service.
The cost savings will be great but if the ability to "get real-time information" will entice people to conserve this precious resource;that alone will be worth the cost of the water-meters...I've always though that water was relatively cheap,considering.

Will there be a retroactive refund for water that was charged and paid for but not used? Not only can you save the people money in the future but you can also pay back the money that you now admit to overcharging. I want more info on this situation Vic Ad.
