Stocks in this article: MWA

ATLANTA, Sept. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The City of Jackson, Mississippi will upgrade its water system with Mueller Systems' state-of-the-art advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) network through a contract from Siemens Industry, Inc.'s Building Technologies division. Mueller Systems is a leading provider of innovative water infrastructure products and services and technologically advanced metering systems for water, electric and gas systems.

The City of Jackson will implement the Mi.Net® Mueller Infrastructure Network for Utilities—Mueller Systems' advanced two-way AMI network. The Mi.Net System will automate the City's meter reading-to-billing process by linking its meters, distribution sites and control devices in a single data network.

In addition to the Mi.Net System, the City will install 65,000 water meters throughout the City by the end of 2014. All residential meters will be Mueller Systems' 420 Remote Disconnect Meter (RDM). The 420 RDM is a fully integrated remote disconnect meter and is designed to enable the City to remotely manage water services through the Mi.Net System. 

The Mi.Net System enables utilities to improve operational efficiencies and customer service by fully automating the meter reading-to-billing process and linking meters, distribution sites and control devices in a single data network. The Mi.Net System features on-demand meter readings, e-mail alerts and alarms based upon near real-time information as well as the ability for utilities to better manage their water resources through on-going access to custom data and information.

"The City of Jackson is taking a leadership role in improving its water infrastructure and using innovative technology to create a foundation to add other features in the future that will improve the service it offers its constituents," said Hassan Ali, vice president and general manager of Mueller Systems. "Our technology is designed to automate the collection of meter readings, provide customers with a better understanding of their water bills, help identify leaks that are responsible for losing treated water and promote greater operating efficiencies for a municipality."
