SCOPE: The City of Kansas City, Missouri Water Services Department installed “The WAVE” in residences and places of business beginning in the spring of 2007 through the spring of 2010, eliminating the need for meter readers to manually gather utility meter readings. “The WAVE” is an automated meter reading program that uses wireless radio transmitters to remotely read customer meters. LMG was hired by VSI Meter Services, project manager, under a 3-year contract to remove the outdated water meters and install the new meter reading devices. This project included meter installation, utility water main repair, curb and gutter cuts and repairs, and utility shut-offs/hook-ups.
