Abstract: The Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) devices provide us the ability to read a large number of meters in a short period of time. With the AMR we monitored weekly water consumption of several thousand customers and identified those responsible for the summer peak demand. The geographic information system (GIS) provided us the instrument to balance the local (pumping district) supply and demand, and to identify customer types and their geographic distributions. The GIS is an invaluable tool for planning of effective conservation program.
