Itron Modernizes Water Distribution System in Southeast Australia

Snowy Valleys Council utilizing Itron technology and software as a service to improve operational efficiency

LIBERTY LAKE, Wash. — Nov. 2, 2016 — Itron, Inc. (NASDAQ: ITRI), a world-leading technology and services company dedicated to the resourceful use of energy and water, announced today that the Snowy Valleys Council, service provider to residents in southeast Australia, is working with Itron to improve the operation of its water distribution system. The council has begun deploying Itron’s water metering automation solution, including Itron subsidiary Temetra’s advanced data collection and data management software as a service (SaaS).

The solution is enabling operational and meter-reading efficiencies and allowing Snowy Valleys Council to bill customers in an accurate and timely fashion. With fast drive-by metering, the solution collects and processes advanced data to capture insights from across the council’s distribution network. The data is available through an online, cloud-based interface and the solution seamlessly integrates with the council’s billing system.

“Itron’s water automation solution is giving Snowy Valleys Council the opportunity to optimize its water operations. The flexibility of the solution allows the council to deploy smart technologies at its own pace and easily upgrade to AMI if the need arises,” said Dominique Lerouge, Itron vice president for water and heat, Asia Pacific. “We are glad to help the Snowy Valleys Council more effectively manage the delivery and use of water resources.”
