Mandan Updates Water Meters

Posted: Updated:

Mandan plans to upgrade nearly all of the city's 66 hundred water meters. The new meters will allow meter readers to drive by and collect water usage data via radio transmission, making it unnecessary to walk onto private property.

The updates will start in April and wrap up the following January and are being done because of the changing technology.

"What happens with the meter system is that the older it gets you actually lose revenue. Which goes to pay to fix your water treatment plant, your underground system. So being as this system hadn't really had a bunch of upgrades since 1914 we need to do that," says Jay Perkins, Water Meter Supervisor.

Property owners won't see an increase in their water rates unless their previous water meters have been inaccurately reporting their  usage.
