The City of Lloydminster has begun replacing outdated water meters throughout the city.
City Hall says that the upgrades are part of their 2015 Water Meter Replacement Program, where workers will swap out old water meters at homes and businesses with smart-meters, which improves accuracy, and provides additional information on water consumption.
The city says all customers with outdated meters will receive a call to establish an appointment for the upgrade. If the City is unable to reach residents or businesses by phone, they say a notification brochure will be delivered to the owner’s mailing address. The city also says workers will be flexible to work around the schedules of customers who cannot be home during regular business hours.
The city says water meter replacements will not cost residents any money, and will take around 45 minutes to complete. Replacement of the meters is mandatory.
