How do AMI meters work?
With the new AMI meters, water consumption information will be collected wirelessly over a secure radio frequency by the water utility. Since AMI meters collect water consumption information around the clock, customers will have the convenience of checking their current water use any time through a secure web site. With this knowledge, they will be able to adjust their consumption habits, and/or identify leaks before the bill arrives. AMI meters will not transmit any personal information or interfere with electronic or medical devices.
