meter components-01-01-01-01Intro to the meter and components

Your new water meter accurately measures the water you use in litres and cubic metres (m3). Your water bill is calculated based on the number of cubic metres used in a billing cycle. As water passes through the meter, the “Sweep Hand” moves around the dial. Each complete revolution of the dial equals 100 litres (.1m3) of water.

droplets-01-01How will the City gather my information?

The meter installed in your home has a remote component. This means that the meter readers can take a reading by remote from outside your home. The only time anyone would need to access your home after installation would be to inspect, test, repair or replace the meter.

There will be no cost to the homeowner for the meter installation.

2. Is it mandatory to have a meter installed?

Yes, all customers are required to be metered by December 31, 2019.
