The 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
