The Meter Division maintains all the metering systems within the water distribution and service system under the city’s jurisdiction. In addition, the department provides all of the readings for the utility bills on a monthly basis for residential and commercial customers. Workers perform other duties as needed to fill in voids in the overall department, including manpower on weekends and holidays.
Retrofitting of Meters for Monthly Readings
The meters are currently being retrofitted with radio read equipment to provide actual readings on a monthly basis. Previously, the Public Works Department provided readings once per quarter and the ensuing monthly quantities were estimated for billing purposes. The public will see a much more accurate system, and this will help catch leaks in homes and businesses more quickly.
