Throughout the summer of 2015, City staff will be installing AMR devices on the outside of houses and buildings.
Once the devices are installed, it will no longer be necessary for a City employee to walk from house to house to collect water meter readings.
They will install a device that fits over the existing remote reader. The devices are approximately 8” square. The batteries in these devices are expected to last about 20 years, which will minimize the need for ongoing maintenance. In most cases, there will be no need to access the meter.
City employees will notify you when the AMR device has been installed by placing a notice on the door.
If you have any questions about the project, please call (320) 234-4222.
