Estimated Readings

The AMR system sends the meter reading from the meter by radio signal to the vehicle unit.  The transmission unit is powered by a specially sealed battery unit.  Low battery signals are sent along with the readings when a battery is nearing end of life.  Work orders are scheduled and batteries are replaced.  The battery units have no impact on the function of the water meter.  The water meter continues to measure water flow.

If we are unable to access the meter and transmitter you may receive an estimated bill. If the “TYPE” entry on your bill is “A” we have successfully read your meter. If “TYPE” is “E” the Radio system did not transmit a reading and we have issued service order to inspect the equipment. 

If you have an inside meter you may receive a door tag or we may mail you a letter.  Please contact our office to setup an appointment at your earliest convenience.
