Council approves water meter purchases

During the City Council meeting on Monday, March 11, Council approved a water meter purchase critical for measuring the city’s water use. Water meters are installed at every service connection to the city’s water distribution system. These meters measure customer water use that is used for monthly billing purposes and strategic planning for the water utility.

Accurate water use data ensures customers are correctly billed for the water they use, and also helps the city develop new water conservation programs, target repair, replacement, and upgrades for our water system infrastructure, and ensure legal compliance for the city’s water rights.

City staff regularly test meters for accuracy because meters tend to under-record with age.

Up to $200,000 will be spent in 2019 to purchase replacement parts for water meters to ensure they are operating properly.
