Cary water meter reading goes wireless
Posted February 28, 2013
Cary, N.C. — The Town of Cary is offering residents a new online tool to track their water usage.
The Aquastar portal is designed to help 60,000 residents conserve water and save money. Officials estimate the system will save more than $10 million over 17 years, compared with the cost of manual meter reading.
The wireless system, which allows customers to set water usage text or email alerts, collects multiple meter reads each day. Those who already have an online utility payment account can use the same information to log in.
Cary officials said the town is the first municipality in the Triangle to offer a completely wireless system. Aquastar was designed and built for $172,553.
To access the portal, search “my utility bill” at the town's website .
