Buffalo Grove was once inhabited by the Native American Potawatomi tribes. Palatine was founded in 1866 and built around the Chicago and Nort Western Railway. Glenview was home to the Naval Air Station Glenview from 1923 to 1995, which primarily operated training aircraft and seaplanes during WWII.
1. Client Challenge
Envocore began work on the Consortium project in June of 2015. The project consisted of three suburban burrows around the general area of Chicago that wanted to upgrade 47,059 underperforming meters, recapture unrecorded usage, and improve customer satisfaction.
2. Metering Solution
To complete the project with maximum efficiency, Envocore partnered with an Energy Savings Company (ESCO) acting as a general contractor (Siemens). The work included the optimization of water management used for utility metering and plumbing.
The project was completed in August of 2016 with the replacement of 47,059 Sensus iPerl and OMNI water meters ranging in size from 5/8” to 6” diameter. Envocore also completed work on running new ground wire and plumbing repairs to ensure optimal performance. This project was done on time and within budget.
