Contractors Begin Installing Test Meters for AMI Project

Contractors for the City of Plainview have begun installing test meters for the automatic water meter project in several locations around the City this week.

The test meters will provide an opportunity for the contractors to review installation conditions, test the meter transmission information and ensure the information integrates with all required software programs.

Once the test meter installation is complete, contractors will begin installing meters across Plainview; every residential meter will be replaced. The City will notify customers via website, local media, social media and posters when the project begins.  

The AMI Project (Advanced Metering Infrastructure) Project Upgrade will allow residents access to more frequent and detailed information about water usage, better control of resident water usage and monthly bills. The project includes a water meter, a meter box and a low-powered communication device/radio. The meter will continuously record water usage and transmit the read through a secure network several times a day to the meter data management software located in the cloud.
