Meter Reading

Meters are read on a monthly basis. All of the District's water meters were changed in the summer of 2009 to an Automated Meter Reading (AMR) system. This system uses a vehicle equipped with a radio unit to read  module-equipped water meters via radio transmitted signals without the need to physically access the meter.
