City of Calgary Water Services is continuing with a Water Meter
Exchange Program that began on September 30, 2013.
The program is exchanging aging water meters that are
reaching the end of their expected life of 15 to 20 years. The
older meters are physically read by ENMAX Power each month. They
will be replaced by a newer technology meter with an Encoded Radio Transmitter
(ERT) that will allow the meter readers to remotely read these meters from a
The Meter Exchange Program will allow Water Services to
reduce meter reading costs, provide you with more accurate bills, and
replace an aging asset, ensuring meter accuracy.
The Meter Exchange Program is being undertaken on a
community by community basis and is targeting over 100,000 meters for
replacement over the next 6-8 years. The program has focused on a
number of communities across the City and has replaced over 48,000 meters since
2013. In the next few weeks, The City will begin to contact customers in
the communities of the Oakridge, Cedarbrae, Braeside, and Southwood.
