Project Update 8/13/19:

To date, 396 water meters have been replaced.  This is approximately 20% of the total water meters.

Project Update 7/24/19:

It is common to have dirty water after a meter change-out, especially if the water is not used much.  There is sediment that settles where the meter is installed and it breaks loose when the new meter is installed.  Please be sure to run your water for a few minutes using the water source closest to the meter.
