The Alameda County Water District (ACWD) recently announced plans to begin installing Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) throughout Fremont, Newark, and Union City. The upgrades will allow ACWD to read meters remotely, detect leaks faster, and allow customers to monitor consumption data in a user-friendly web portal.
“We are proud to invest in our community with a technology upgrade that our customers have asked for to support their water-efficiency habits,” said ACWD Board President Aziz Akbari. “With smart meter technology, customers have more timely access to their water consumption data empowering them to make adjustments or fix leaks, as needed, he said. “Together, through this smart technology, we can work toward achieving ACWD’s water conservation goals and improving water supply reliability for our community.”
ACWD will begin installation next month and is expected to be complete by December 2023.
Customers will receive a notice on their door 3-5 days prior to work being done and can expect their water to be temporarily turned off for no more than one hour per home during installation. No action is required from customers to ensure their installation happens seamlessly.
ACWD will be holding a virtual Community Information Meeting on March 10, 2021, at 6 p.m. For more information, visit www.acwd.org/ami.
