The Water Utilities Department of Arlington came up with a pilot project were they looked at their 4 most expensive meter reading routes to read. Where they were able to cost justify a project to replace meters all around the center part of Arlington and put them on a fix network. These wireless water meters allows the central office to get hourly water usage and hourly readings 24 hours a day, where as before they were only reading them once a month. The Assistant Director of Water Utilities, Darryl Westbrook advices water customers to visit their website http://www.savearlingtonwater.com to check how you can save water.
