Radio Reading Water Meters

The new water meters in the City of Poughkeepsie are Sensus iPERL water meters.  These are radio frequency meters not electric smart meters.

The City of Poughkeepsie has invested in these meters to insure that all water consumers in the City are billed equitably.  The majority of meters the City of Poughkeepsie is replacing are over 30 years old.  The equipment needed to extract the data required for billing is no longer available.

The meters themselves are passive and do not produce any radio energy of any kind.  The meters meet the strict standards of the National Science Foundation, which is the national reference agency for plumbing fittings and pipes to ensure drinking water safety.  The meters also meet American Water Works Association standards for accuracy.  These two agencies produce the standards for which all water meters in the U.S. must meet.
