Meter Exchange Program in Ward 6 Communities

  • Share

Ward 6 official websiteThe City of Calgary Water Services is continuing with a water meter exchange program that began on  September 30, 2013.  As part of this program, customers in Ward 6 will be contacted about changes to their water meter.    The program is targeting exchanging aging water meters as these assets are reaching the end of their expected life.   The older meters are physically read by The City's meter reading contractor, Enmax Power, every month.   They will be replaced by a newer technology meter with an Encoded Radio Transmitter (ERT), that will allow meter readers to remotely read these meters from a distance.  The meter exchange program will allow Water Services to reduce meter reading costs,  provide customers with more accurate bills, and replace an aging asset, ensuring meter accuracy.    

The meter exchange program will be 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 have replaced over 40,000 meters since 2013 .  In the next few weeks, Water Services will begin to contact customers in the communities of the Signal Hill, Christie Park, Strathcona Park, Springbank Hill, West Springs, and Patterson.  The number of meters being  replaced in these communities are:

            Signal Hill                                1115
            Christie Park                           179
            Strathcona Park                      465
            Springbank Hill                        97
            West Springs                           73
            Patterson                                 297
