The City of Gresham, Oregon, has deployed Sensus AquaSense intelligent water management technologies to enhance sustainability and improve operational efficiency.

The AquaSense solution unites a two-way communications network with advanced meters, software and services to enable Gresham and its customers to better manage water resources.

Gresham completed deployment of a tower-based advanced metering infrastructure system, including the Sensus FlexNet communications network and 16,000 SRII residential water meters, in November 2010 and is now expanding the deployment to serve its commercial water customers.

Deployment of about 400 Sensus OMNI commercial water meters enables Gresham to deliver an intelligent water management system for all its customers.

The project was funded in part by a grant awarded through the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act and a separate grant from the state of Oregon Infrastructure Finance Authority, in addition to capital funds already allocated for a meter replacement program.
