Austin Water is replacing 240,000 water meters with advanced (self-reporting) water meters throughout the entire Austin Water service area. Atlas’ roles in the project have included performing a condition assessment of ~1,800 water meters in 2018 and providing construction management during the installation phase. Atlas has worked directly with the project management team and vendors to streamline the pilot program and permitting process, supervise the QC field inspection process, identify new meter box, and lid design needs, assess potential locations for data collection units, convey project information to outside entities, and troubleshoot any issues that arose in the field. Atlas also assures quality installs and escalation activity according to schedule, manages customer engagement procedures and repeatable processes to assure consistent messaging, and tracks vendor payment activity and build out progress.
