When Hank Zwart took over as director of public works in 2014, the city was in the initial phases of installing a walkby system that was eight-year-old technology. Knowing this older metering technology is not the best way forward, Zwart and the City of Prescott decided to implement the latest AMR technology that supports future migration to AMI. To meet this goal, City of Prescott chose Kamstrup’s READy AMR system.
Learning a new AMR system, even for the experienced water professional, can sound like a daunting task, as technology is rapidly changing. However, as Hank Zwart describes his first training session with his long-time lead foreman, it proves that choosing Kamstrup’s user-friendly meter reading system makes all the difference.
