City of Stevenson

The City of Stevenson engaged Apollo Solutions Group in their quest for more efficient and accurate water meters in their city. With 730 meters in both residential and commercial applications, the units were aging and were inaccurate. The lighting systems in City Hall and the Water Treatment Building used older lighting technology that is not as energy efficient as lighting systems getting installed today.

Apollo created a custom plan for the city that updated a more streamlined meter reading, reducing labor costs while drastically improving accuracy. Meters that were previously as low as 80% accurate now are guaranteed at 98.5%; adding over $73,000 in revenue recovery to the city along with the reduced labor costs. The lighting systems in City Hall and in the Water Treatment Building received new LED Light Fixtures and controls.
