Wheaton to begin replacing water meters

WHEATON – The city's Water Division is expected to begin a five-year process to replace 16,500 water meters in Wheaton, according to a city news release.

The current meters have been in service 10 to 15 years and have reached the end of their useful life. Old water meters often lose accuracy, resulting in incorrect billing and non-revenue water loss. The new meters will operate the same as the old ones, which use a wireless device to transmit readings to a licensed radio frequency. The new meters have an expected 20-year battery life.

The city will send a letter to residents requesting a meter replacement appointment. The replacement will take about 30 minutes to complete and includes a 15 minute shut-off.
