Your Water Meter is
About to Get Real Smart!
In the next few weeks, the Town of Erie Department of Public Works will begin replacing residential water meters with “Smart Meters” as part of our efforts to reduce water waste throughout the community and increase efficiency. Once installed, your new Smart Meter will give you access to your water consumption data, allowing you to view your usage activity and gain a greater understanding and control of the water you consume on a daily, monthly and annual basis.
Some of the customer benefits include:
Online and Smart Phone access to your water consumption information
Easy to understand tracking of your water usage patterns and billing
Set alerts to email and/or text you when a potential leak is detected
See the results of your water conservation efforts within 24 hours
Monitor your usage through the month to better manage your water budget
The way your utility bill is sent to you and the way you pay for charges will not change. What will change is that you will have access to detailed usage activity. Additionally, these Smart Meters will provide the Town a more efficient way to manage meter readings, provide a higher level of customer service and allow our Utility Billing staff to answer questions about your water usage more effectively.
