HIGH SPRINGS ‒ The City of High Springs has announced the arrival of its much-anticipated state-of-the-art water metering system to High Springs water customers.

Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is part of the City’s effort to upgrade the city’s water distribution system with an electronic reading capability and to replace meters that have served beyond their estimated useful lives. The target meter population includes all commercial and residential meters. The estimated time of completion for the entire project is two months.

Water meters are the devices used to measure the amount of water delivered to customers. The new system will allow meters to be read from cellular collectors mounted to infrastructure across the city. The new meters will assist in accurately tracking both individual usage for billing purposes, and monitor and evaluate community demands.

AMI technology has been proven to be an effective metering tool in cities and towns across the country. The technology provides for the ability to track consumption (hourly reading) and offers higher reliability thanks to timely readings and closer meter reading and billing dates. Both the City and customers will benefit from smarter decisions regarding service and usage, problem-solving capabilities, and improved resident engagement and service.

The City of High Springs has partnered with HST Utility to install some 2,800 new meters, with installation slated to begin in October.
