As reported previously, the District is currently replacing all manual-read water meters with meters that can be read remotely through the radio frequency transmissions they emit(most of you have an automated Puget Sound Energy meter at your homes and businesses).These meters will allow for much faster and more accurate collection of water consumption information and will enable the District to provide you with better information concerning patterns of water use during your billing cycle. This information can help determine the existence and duration of water leaks in your plumbing.
The District is aware that customers may be concerned about the radio frequency waves transmitted from the AMR meters. We believe the radio frequency transmissions are safe and will not endanger humans or animals. To help you better understand the issues associated with these radio waves, we have placed an information sheet, prepared by the company that manufacturers the meters we are installing, on our website. We urge you to take a look if you have any questions about the safety of these meters.
