Water Meter Replacement Project

One of the most notable projects in the water system has been the installation of new water meters. This program, now in its final year, will result in nearly every water meter being replaced with new meters attached to a meter transmitting unit (MTU). The MTU’s will transmit meter readings every six hours to try to ensure that at least one data transmission makes it through to the host server, located in the Town Hall Annex.

 Standard New Residential Meter

All of this data will enable the Town to better monitor the water system and allow for computerized billing. The new fixed network system can monitor itself for leak detection, malfunctioning, or tampered devices, through what is called exception reports. Customers will be better served through real time data collection, making complaints, or assistance made much easier for our staff.
