The City of Schertz is purchasing new water meters that will increase efficiencies in the water department and improve accuracy in reading water usage. The vote to approve the new water meters was made during the August 14 Schertz City Council Meeting.
This fall, water utility customers will start seeing their water meters replaced as part of the City's Advanced Water Meter System project, a new service enhancement initiative to install advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) throughout the community. The city-wide installation of 14,208 new meters is projected to take 9 months. Once installed, the new meter system will provide customers with more accurate water usage data that is updated multiple times throughout the day, water budget and water consumption threshold alerts, comparative data, leak alerts and notifications from the City.
Professional Meters Inc, (PMI) will be installing these meters on behalf of the City of Schertz. Their vehicles and personal will be marked. Your water service will see an average of 10 minutes interruption during the meter change out. Every effort will be made to notify you of the change out and flushing of the lines.
