|We are excited to announce that the District has received a $1.5 million federal grant to help upgrade our meter technology and detect leaks. The U.S. Department of Interior Bureau of Reclamation awarded Moulton Niguel funds to implement the final phase of the District’s “Advanced Metering Infrastructure” program, which includes the installation of more than 45,000 smart meters for all our customers. The automated meters will help the District proactively detect water leaks, improve operations, and allow customers to monitor their water usage in real-time. This project is expected to save more than 500 million gallons of water every year!
What’s Next? Moulton Niguel is currently working to install nearly 4,900 smart meters at residential, commercial, and fire protection sites throughout our service area as part of the second phase. When complete in Spring 2020, we will begin the final phase of the AMI Program to give all our customers access to real-time water usage data.
