Meter Installation Project
The Town of Watson is modernizing its water system infrastructure to provide the community with better water conservation and leak detection information, as well as to reduce the cost of operation.
ICONIX Waterworks has been contracted by the Town to supply and install the new metering technology.
Meter replacements and transmitter installations will start in January 2020. We will perform the work Monday through Friday, from 8:00am to 4:00pm.
Your new meter will be installed in the same area as your current metering equipment. Every effort will be made to minimize the impact to your home or business.
Installations take approximately 30 minutes to one hour depending on the requirements of the particular residence or business. During this time, water is typically unavailable for approximately 10 minutes.
No. ICONIX Waterworks has a contract to supply and install the transmitters. Every installer is professionally trained to install the new metering technology.
Your bill will begin to reflect your actual water usage, rather than an estimate. You will continue to receive your bill on the same schedule as before the upgrade.
Your new meter will allow the Town to read your usage remotely over the LTE cellular network. The Town will not need to visit your property to obtain a reading.
Your meter reading data is encrypted with the same technology many Canadian financial institutions use, and identifiable customer information is never stored or transmitted by the advanced meters. In addition to the encryption, only a unique code that identifies the transmitter in the advanced meter and your read will be sent to the Town.
