City Replacing Water Meters in Three Areas
October 2, 2013 - The City of Longmont’s Utility Operations and Maintenance team conducts an annual maintenance program to replace water meters on a 10 to 15 year cycle to ensure accuracy. This year beginning October 1, 2013 and running through November, a contractor, Utility Sales & Service, Inc., has been hired to replace 600 meters installed in meter pits outside of the homes. Replacement meters will include wireless technology which will aid in meter reading. Meters are replaced at no cost to the property owner.
Utility Sales & Services’ technicians will knock on the resident’s door in an effort to contact residents before they begin work. If no one answers the door, work will progress as scheduled. The contractor will have City of Longmont identification, but residents are welcome to call 303-651-8468 for verification. The water will need to be turned off for a very short time and the technicians will make a concerted effort to contact residents if they believe someone is at home.
The 3 areas where the contractor will be working include:
- West of Spencer Street and north of the Oligarchy Ditch
- Allen Drive north to 9th Avenue and Hover west to Teal Circle
- North of Clover Basin and immediately east of N. 75th
