Installation of meters should usually take about 30 minutes with water service being unavailable at that time
Before temporarily interrupting individual water services, crews will make every effort to ensure that doing so will not impose an undue hardship on the customer, for example, by observing the meter to see if water is being used and knocking on doors to contact those who may be inside.
To ensure that the installation is complete, workers will test the new meter. Its normal to experience air in the pipes after installation of the new meter. After the installation is complete, the crew will leave another door hanger at the entrance to the property informing you that your new automated meter has been installed and is ready to be used.
PROGRAM COST AND TIMING
The total cost of the Automated Meter Infrastructure Project is $5.5 million. Installation of the new meters will occur in six phases starting Fall 2016 through Summer 2021.
