The NYC DEP is automating its water meter reading capabilities to increase billing accuracy and provide customers with the tools they need to better manage their water usage.

This new AMR technology will send accurate readings to a computerized billing system up to four times a day and will largely eliminate the need for estimated bills. Since it is an automated system, AMR eliminates the need for meter reading personnel to visit customer properties. Read more at the NYC Department of Environmental Protection.
