Water meter replacement program continues

Continue reading below

A city contractor is partly through a project to replace the city’s residential and commercial water meters with automated meters. Mass Installation to date has installed 2,400, or about 30 percent, of the approximately 8,000 new meters. Under the new automated system, the meters will transmit water-usage data by radio waves to city offices. Mass Installation has also completed the installation of the radio repeaters that will pick up the meter signals and transmit them to the city’s customer database. The repeaters are at the Lafayette and Madeline English schools, the High School, and the school administration building, and the receiver is at City Hall. Mayor Carlo DeMaria Jr., in a statement, said the new system is part of an ongoing effort to improve city services. “It will reduce meter reading costs, as well as eliminate meter reading discrepancies and the need to access residential property in order to collect a reading.”
