City water meters have been replaced. This change will allow the meters to be read by transmitter signals rather than physically reading each one, providing more accurate readings, the ability to find a leak more quickly plus time savings. Readings are monitored on an hourly basis and are available every six hours. Meter lids will be locked to prevent tampering with the transmitters. Please make sure your indoor shut off valves are in good working condition. In case of emergency call 911 and request city personnel shut off your water.
