City of Garretson Implements First Combined Water-Natural Gas AMA System

In the coming months, the City of Garretson, S.D. will be will be implementing exciting upgrades to its utility meter reading infrastructure. The city will be the first in the country to deploy a combined water and natural gas advanced metering analytics (AMA) solution from Badger Meter.

A long-time Badger Meter customer, the city decided to replace its existing walk-by/drive-by automatic meter reading (AMR) system with a more advanced ORION SE (Smart Endpoint) solution that enables meters to automatically transmit readings to a central location throughout the day. Coupled with sophisticated ReadCenter Analytics software, it will provide more timely and efficient readings and information that will help the city proactively manage its utility operations.

The city’s current AMR system has been in place for more than 13 years and is read on a once-a-month basis. The radio portion of the system was projected for 10 years of use and has outlasted its expected lifecycle. Designed specifically for water and gas applications, the new solution will not only save on meter reading time, it will provide real-time information to help with monitoring and managing use and maintenance.
