Water Losses in India Cut in Half by Smart Meters: Itron

Itron Inc., the largest U.S. maker of metering devices that save energy and cut waste, said smart meters installed in Mumbai reduced water losses by half.

Smart meter use in India’s most populous city eliminated 50 percent of the 700 million liters (150 million gallons) a day of water that’s wasted or leaked by broken pipes, Marcel Regnier, Itron’s chief operating officer for water, said today from Paris. Itron is based in Liberty Lake, Washington.
