ELK GROVE METER ROUTE OPTIMIZATION
The Elk Grove Water District retained MC Engineering, Inc. to consolidate the District’s meter books by geographic location and to optimize their route sequencing. Using Arc-GIS, Mr. Inferrera worked closely with the District’s meter reader to reduce the number of meter books from 21 to 18 while adding over 3000 new accounts to the system and re-sequencing them to follow optimal right side routing. All meters were entered into Arc GIS and geo-located to provide the city with an accurate map of meter assets. The project is expected to reduce meter reading and billing labor and improve customer service.
