Touch-read water meters replacing older residential models
- Updated on Thursday, January 30, 2014 January 30, 2014
The City of Albany is replacing residential water meters that are more than 20 years old with a new model that allows meter readers to take readings electronically.
On older model meters, readers must open the lid to record water use numbers each month. The new Sensus iPerl meters have an electronic touch pad that gives a reading without needing to open the lid. The new meters are further distinguished from the older models with a white cover plate.
The iPerl is lead-free, has no moving parts, and is warranted to be accurate for at least 20 years.
