PARIS New water meters will be installed in every house and business in Paris starting this month.
There is no cost for the water meter or the installation process.
To learn more, residents can attend an open house on Sept. 11, from 3 p.m .to 5 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., in the Lafarge Meeting Room, Brant Sports Complex.
“The typical life of a water meter is up to 20 years old,” said Rob Walton, Brant County general manager of operations. “They eventually need to be replaced.”
The county noted that upgraded meters will be read from the street rather than by accessing the homeowner’s property.
Neptune Technology Group has been contracted to install the new water meters.
Walton said the installations will occur from September to February.
“As technicians move into your area, homeowners will receive communication from the County of Brant and Neptune prompting them to book an appointment.”
Appointments can be made during the day and evening and on Saturdays.
The county said Neptune employees wear uniforms and carry photo ID. The Neptune call centre can be called at 1-800-667-4387.
County employees also carry photo ID.
