New Water Metering Program

New Water Metering Program

City Completes Commercial Water Meters & Implement an Automatic Meter Reading System


The City of Waltham Engineering Department is pleased with results of the new water metering improvements program. This program replaced water meters and installed a new fixed network automatic meter reading (AMR) system at each commercial account in the City. The new meter reading system allows the City to collect meter readings without sending personnel to each customer’s property. At last check, it was determined that 11% more revenue is being captured as a result of right sizing and replacing water meters under this program. The City expended $750,000 on this program which includes all the necessary hardware being installed in this phase of the new meter program. Another positive aspect of this program is that we are reducing the City's unaccounted for water. We expect to continue these successes in the next "Residential" phase of the new water meter program.

If you have any questions or concerns about the program, please contact the program manager, Stephen Pittorino at 781-314-3810 or the City Engineer, Stephen Casazza at 781-314-3830 or scasazza@city.waltham.ma.us.
