Water Meter Change Out

The City of Elmhurst is embarking on a program that will replace all residential and commercial water meters with new automated meters. The new meters will replace older, underperforming units with new technology that will identify high water usage and potential leaks.

The meters will continue to automatically transmit data wirelessly and eliminate the need to manually drive past to read each meter. This allows the City to be more efficient and save money by preventing recording errors and eliminating time consuming manual meter reading.

Every water customer will receive a new water meter at no additional cost. It will take about 1 year to replace all of the meters in the City. The City is the process of awarding a contract to Siemens to perform this meter upgrade. The subcontracted installer (PMI) will need access to your home to replace the meter. Siemens will work with you to arrange a convenient appropriate time to complete this task.
