Global Water Enters Texas with FATHOM™ Platform Contract with the City of Kennedale

Global Water Enters Texas with FATHOM™ Platform Contract with the City of 
PHOENIX, Dec. 17, 2012 /CNW/ - GWR Global Water Resources Corp. (TSX: GWR) and 
Global Water Resources, Inc. ("Global Water") today announced that the City of 
Kennedale, Texas (the "City"), has contracted Global Water's FATHOM™ 
platform to provide the City with a fully integrated, end‐to‐end Customer 
Information System (CIS), including utility billing, customer care, and 
Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI). The City's selection of FATHOM™ is 
significant as it represents direct action by the city to address the area's 
ongoing drought with effective water conservation plans, powerful customer 
services tools, upgraded infrastructure, and real-time data. 
"We currently provide customer service, billing and meter reading activities 
in-house," said Bob Hart, City Manager. "When we visited Global Water, we saw 
first-hand how their investments in technology could transform our own 
operations and increase service with real-time data and robust customer-facing 
tools. FATHOM™ supports our initiatives to eliminate meter-related water 
loss and promote water conservation methods during these challenging 
water-scarce times. We believe a partnership with Global Water represents a 
real opportunity to affect positive change for our City." 
Mr. Trevor Hill, President & CEO, Global Water stated, "Water is a finite 
resource and with the recent droughts in Texas, the ability of Kennedale - and 
all cities in Texas - to reduce overall water consumption through sustainable 
consumption behavior is of utmost importance. The combination of our AMI and 
CIS platforms will educate the City's customers on their water usage behaviors 
in real time, which in our experience leads to a natural reduction in overall 
water demands." 
"We are thrilled the City has selected our integrated, geospatially focused 
FATHOM™ CIS and AMI offering. Choosing FATHOM™ to effectively achieve 
sustained conservation, customer engagement and operational objectives will 
benefit Kennedale in many ways, specifically in terms of data collection and 
analysis, advanced technologies, improved service levels, and revenue 
increases. We are confident the results will serve as a model for other 
Texas cities to adopt demand side management in addition to their supply side 
strategies and affect real change in the water industry and in Texas," Mr. 
Hill concluded.
