On April 1, 2015 California Governor Jerry Brown issued executive orders mandating a substantial reduction in urban water consumption compared with 2013 levels. Section 17 calls for the use of water-use monitoring software to help address our severe drought conditions.

WaterSmart Home Water Reports offer customized message delivery over mobile, email, and print and can be tailored to the specific reduction targets and irrigation schedules instituted by your utility.

Tracking and reporting compliance

The WaterSmart Utility Analytics Dashboard provides a special drought module which provides charts on overall conservation trends as well as detailed household performance reports and visibility into which customer segments are complying with reduction goals.


Detect and alert residents to possible leaks

ami & non-ami leak detection

WaterSmart subscription reports are sent directly to your inbox which detail likely leaks due to persistent increase in consumption, regardless of consumption read frequency. We rank leaks by severity and also offer a simple view of resolved and outstanding leaks.


The WaterSmart platform delivers likely leak alerts directly to homeowners over SMS or email. This provides for faster leak resolution, reduced water loss, and improved customer relations.



Detect and notify irrigation violators

For water suppliers with AMI, WaterSmart can detect irrigation patterns from interval consumption data and deliver a report of likely violators, thus improving compliance and reducing enforcement costs.

violation reports

Both AMI and non-AMI water suppliers are offered reports on possible compliance violations on the part of residential customers. Irrigation violation reports allow utilities to target specific customer segments with compliance messaging before resorting to more stringent penalties.
