NYC To Install Real-Time Meters To Monitor Water Consumption
A $252 million city-wide upgrade of the city's water tracking system aims to help residents monitor usage.
A $252 million city-wide upgrade of NYC’s water tracking system aims to monitor the city’s water consumption in real time. Starting this week, wireless meters will allow Bronx residents to see exactly how much water they are using at any given time.
In a press release Monday, with Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and the city’s environmental protection commissioner Caswell F. Holloway IV, the Mayor stated the hope behind the project:
“By providing homeowners and business with real-time access to their water bills, we’re giving New Yorkers access to information they’ve never had before, so they can analyze their water consumption and target savings.”
