AMI Smart Water Meters

Smart water meters are coming to the City of Savannah

The City of Savannah has initiated a comprehensive project to replace and modernize our older water meters with new, proven technology that has been successfully installed by other public water systems. Using funds from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), the City has committed an initial $5.3 million to begin the process of replacing approximately 50,000 older, existing water meters throughout the City of Savannah Water System over the next several years.  

The primary goal of this project is to provide the most accurate and reliable water usage data for our customers by installing advanced metering technology, commonly known as “smart meters” using Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI).  The AMI technology collects water consumption data accurately and securely. The City knows that our customers expect that we achieve the highest level of water usage accuracy possible such that the City and our customers have confidence in the accuracy of their utility bills.  

Benefits of AMI Smart Water Meters:

  • Enhanced accuracy of customer water usage & billing data
  • Reduced City staff involvement in meter reading in the field
  • Improved data collection to direct water conservation efforts
  • Increased confidence in utility billing processes
  • Online customer portal & smartphone app to monitor usage and set leak alerts (future roll-out)
