Fathom to provide smart grid water solution for City of Zephyrhills, Florida

US-based Fathom Water Management has been selected by the City of Zephyrhills in Florida to provide the Fathom Smart Grid for Water solution.

The smart grid integrated solution provides increased transparency to Zephyrhills’ residents with real-time access to water usage data.

Zephyrhills city manager Steve Spina said: “We pride ourselves in providing stellar service to our residents and are committed to bringing our utility customers new tools, like an easy-to-use mobile app, to help them better manage and monitor their water consumption.

“Through Fathom, we’ve upgraded our metering infrastructure and are using big data to increase utility revenue, improve operational efficiency and customer experience.”

The City of Zephyrhills’ water utility is improving its fiscal stewardship through high revenue assurance metrics with the adoption of the Smart Grid for Water.

This reduces accounts receivable and also improves the level of customer service.

Fathom CEO Trevor Hill said: “Florida is an exciting market for us as the region is grappling with challenges related to water quality and supply.

“We are delighted to begin a partnership with Zephyrhills and bring the utility and its customers the usage information and billing integrity they need.”
