Utah Smart City and Internet of Things Projects
City of Orem
Automatic Meter Reading for Water Meters
Bowen Collins & Associates (BCA) completed an independent analysis of the city’s water infrastructure and identified the following projects in need of immediate attention to preserve the quality of availability of Orem’s water:
Replacement of 22,000 Water Meters: BCA has recommended automatic meter reading infrastructure to allow residents to get regular readings each month and throughout the month so that citizens can detect leaks and breaks in their water lines. The automatic meter readers will enable residents to closely monitor their own usage and make changes as they see necessary. This will be a great budgeting tool for families to help monitor water usage and costs. This project will be slowly implemented. The city is in the process of applying for a one-million dollar grant from the feds to assist with implementation.
