Union City to launch water meter replacement program

Union City will be undertaking a new water meter program where approximately 1,500 meters will be updated or replaced during Fiscal Year 2015.

The new meters will be able to securely transmit data remotely to data collection units in the city, which will then be securely transmitted to a central database, effectively reducing the need for city staff to manually obtain a water meter reading. The new meters will also save in operational costs and help ensure fair and equitable billing for customers.

New meters through the program will be installed and rolled out by zone, beginning in Zone 2. The rollout plan targets residents and businesses that have meters that must be read manually. Residents will be notified via door hanger, when installers have replaced or updated their meters.
