In the context of the delegation contract signed in 2003, the City of Metz Water Services Department wished to introduce a system of remote monitoring for the water meters of both the city and the 23 surrounding local authorities. The Water Services Department’s 32,500 meters have been in operation since 2008, making Metz a pioneer in the installation of a permanent radio network for remote water meter reading. This network, operated by m2ocity, the leading operator in France for remote monitoring networks, enables other benefits connected with remote monitoring to be enjoyed. Thus leak alerts and automated water consumption monitoring have been deemed a great success with private users, managers of multi-occupancy buildings and social landlords. Furthermore, the remote monitoring network is used by the city of Metz for other purposes: it enables both water and energy consumption to be monitored in a number of local authority buildings (sports centres, swimming pools) that have undergone heating renovations. It has also made it possible to relay information from water network leak locators via the radio network in order to improve the efficiency of the city’s water supply network.
