What is Automated Meter Reading (AMR)?
Automated Meter Reading, or AMR, is a new technology that allows meters to be read automatically using a laptop computer.

These meters emit radio signals that are collected by computers in our meter readers' trucks. They allow us to collect meter readings automatically.

Charleston Water System began pilot testing this new technology in 2003 and has installed about 60,000 units. The benefits of AMR include more precise meter readings and improved efficiency.
