The water meters have reached the end of their useful lives. Most residential water meters in Sycamore are 10 to 15 years old. Water meters often lose accuracy as they age, resulting in incorrect billing and non-revenue water loss. The new meters have an expected 20-year battery life.
The water meters are being replaced at no charge to the homeowner.
Normal meter installation time is about 30 minutes, during which the water will be shut off for about 15 minutes.
City Code states that it is the homeowner’s responsibility to maintain the water pipes and valves within their homes.
Water Division personnel will need space around the meter to perform the work, and access to the shut-off valves.
