Water Meter Installation, Maintenance, and Reading
Staff install and make repairs to water meters. All meters are read regularly. We do not estimate usage for billing.
Our meters include radio read technology that allows the meters to be read from a laptop computer. This radio read technology has several advantages. They report to a "finer" resolution of 10 gallons as opposed to our older meters reading 1,000 gallons. This is important in detecting small leaks. The radio read technology stores usage data that can be used to identify a leak (defined as any continuous usage 10 gallons per hour for a 24-hour period.) The radio read sends an alert or leak alarm to our laptops when read if a leak has been detected.
