This will increase your base water rate to $300/month plus your consumption cost.

QUICK AND CONVENIENT
Water meter installation appointments can be made to fit your schedule. The work typically takes 30 to 45 minutes to complete. These upgrades will allow the MD to read the water meter remotely from your house or business and will eliminate the need for the meter reader to gain access to your property to read the meter.

PRIOR TO THE INSTALLATION
Please ensure the area around the existing water meter is clear and accessible. In addition to clearing this space, please leave ample room for the installer to work. Your existing shut-off valve should be located where the water service comes into your house or business. Check your main water shut-off valve to make sure it is accessible and operable.

POST INSTALLATION
It is the home owners responsibility to ensure heat tape is working properly or replaced if necessary.

The Water Meter Replacement Program is an important part of the process to ensure equitable billing for all residents and businesses. The upgraded meter will also provide timely leak detection to help minimize unexpectedly high water bills. We look forward to your support and cooperation to make this program a success.
