Las Vegas Valley Water District Selects Itron’s Automated Metering Solution For Operational Efficiency

Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ:ITRI) announced today that Las Vegas Valley Water District (LVVWD), a not-for-profit agency that provides water to more than 1 million residents and 35 million annual visitors in Southern Nevada, has selected Itron’s automated metering solution to improve operational efficiency and streamline meter reading.

The contract includes nearly 400,000 Itron water communication modules for residential and commercial customers as well as Itron’s mobile collection system, field collection system software and overall project management. The technology will be installed over the next five years.

The automated metering solution will enable LVVWD to remotely collect meter data, improving efficiency and accuracy of meter reads. It will also give the utility access to detailed usage data for faster bill resolution, enhanced conservation programs and improved customer service.
