The City Council is actively seeking quotes for replacement of all residential water meters of the city. The city had a water loss study performed last year, and evidence supports this project as top priority which is also included in the City’s working Master Plan. Aging water meters play a major factor in water loss, along with pipe line breaks and leaks; as meters get older, they register slower and ultimately come to a stop when they’ve reached their lifespan. Aging meters cause consumers to believe their water usage has decreased, when in fact it hasn’t, the meter itself has slowed or stopped registering the actual usage accurately. Ultimately, replacing all water meters is a solution for reducing the amount of water and revenue lost; the replacement may, or may not, affect you. However, we are looking to start, or even complete, this project by October 2018.
