Automated Water Meter Replacement Program Update: Schedule Your Meter Change Out Date
The Village has contracted with Siemens to complete a water meter replacement project, which includes the installation of an automated meter reading infrastructure. These new meters will allow the Village to implement an automated meter reading process that will provide better customer service and reduce operational costs.
Siemens will be systematically sending out post cards asking residents and commercial businesses to schedule an appointment for their meter change out. This notification will include a phone number to call and a website where you can self-schedule an appointment. Water meter exchange appointments will begin on October 13 and will continue through the summer of 2016. All meters, regardless of when they were installed or last replaced, will be replaced with the latest technology.
Siemens installers have completed a background check, will be wearing a uniform with the “Siemens” logo, use a marked vehicle with a “Siemens” decal under the side front windows and carry a Village contractor ID card with his or her picture. The installer shall not ask for any personal information and will not request any payment.
If you have any questions or want additional information, please contact Siemens at (855) 620-7991 or visit the Water Meter Project update page by clicking here
