WATER METERS ARE BEING REPLACED

We have been replacing the water meters in town with a new updated water meter system. We will continue to replace them until everyone in town has a new water meter. While your water meter is being replaced, we must briefly turn off your water while working on it. We will turn your water back on as soon as we're finished with your meter.

The meters will be worked on one by one from 8am-4pm Monday thru Friday. Each meter is predicted to take 30 minutes to 90 minutes to swap out. We anticipate this project to take many weeks, weather depending. There is no set schedule as the Town’s laborers are responsible for many tasks and unforeseen situations can change their daily schedule.
