What are the new round metal objects on some water meter lids
Those are radio read meters. It is a new technology we are moving toward. In the future all meters will be read automatically through a network. We have 5 towers located in different area across the county that allow us to have accurate –real time information about water usage. In the near future our residents will be able to see their water usage at any time during the day or night. This is completely tied into our billing and GIS system. We started the project last year and this year we are now up to around 3000 meters on this setup.
