Meter Replacement Program

The Township recently began a $3.5 million project to replace more than 8,000 older residential and commercial water meters with a new generation of remotely-read digital units.  

Over time water meters wear out and their accuracy declines.  The new meters, built by Sensus – formerly a division of Rockwell International – include an extended-life battery rated for 20 years of service.  The meters will be coupled with transmitters mounted on an exterior wall of the customer’s home.  Data will be transmitted every six or eight minutes to receiving antennas, thereby eliminating the need for on-site meter readings every other month.  Estimated billing, which was previously used to account for the months between actual readings, will be eliminated.
