This multi-year project, which began after we completed a pilot study in 2020, is set to replace all manual-read water meters within the District with AMR meters that can be read remotely. With AMR meters, our meter readers can simply drive by homes and businesses to collect water consumption readings, providing for much faster and more accurate collection of water consumption data. This will enable the District to provide you with more information on patterns of water use during your billing cycle. It can also help to determine the existence and duration of water leaks in your plumbing. Staff has replaced over 10,000 of the over 30,000 meters to date. There have been some delays in the implementation of this project since it got underway related to Covid impacts on staffing and supply chain problems. Despite these problems, we remain confident that we will be able to complete all of the meter replacements by late 2024.
