Mesquite News – Mesquite to test water meters as part of a process to evaluate a new digital metering system

The city of Mesquite will be working with Ameresco, Inc. to test randomly selected residential and commercial water meters throughout the city from Nov. 30 through Dec. 11.

This is the first step the city is taking as it considers replacing its current analog meters with an advanced digital system to read water utility meters. The public can visit for details on the program.

“This is part of a multi-year Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) project. We have randomly chosen 68 residential and commercial water meters of our more than 41,000 water accounts to remove and test.  This initial testing will allow the city to evaluate the feasibility to upgrade its current water metering system to a more advanced digital system,” Special Projects Director Mark Kerby said. “Once the evaluation is completed, city staff will provide an update to the City Council on the costs to implement and operate the proposed digital system.”
