[ARCHIVED] Water Meter Replacement

During the fourth quarter of 2018, the City will be upgrading all residential and commercial water meters with new meter technology which allows remote access to water usage data. The meter program is expected to provide enhanced customer service with lead detection, water efficiency and conservation, improved billing functionality and elimination of manual meter reads.

The City is working with Keystone Utility Services (KUS) to install new water meters.  You will receive a letter in the mail with instructions on how to schedule the meter replacement for your home or business. Because your water meter is indoors, installers will need to access your property.

Is there a cost for the meter replacement program?

There is no cost to the property owner to replace the water meter. 

Where is my water meter?  Will I need to do anything?

The meter is typically located in the mechanical or laundry room of each property. To replace the meter, the water will need to be shut off at the valves located on both sides of the water meter. If there is any damage to these values during the installation, the City will cover the cost of repair.  In preparation for the water meter replacement program, it may be advantageous to verify that the values and plumbing are operational.
