New Water Meter System

Milcrofton is excited to announce that we are upgrading our water meter system.  The installation of new water meters across the District will begin on Monday, July 9, 2018.  The old meter system has been deteriorating rapidly across the District due to its age since the first meters were installed in 2003- 2004.  We currently have three different water meter brands and several versions of water meters under each brand in our system.  This new Kamstrup water meter system will allow us to have the same water meter across the District.

We will update you throughout the process so you are aware of the areas where water meters are being replaced.  The entire installation will take 4 – 5 months to complete across the District.  The meter swaps will begin around Long Lane and South Carothers Parkway areas.  Your water meter may possibly remain in place due to already being installed during our testing phase this past year.

The installers will work Monday – Friday from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm.  Interruptions to service will be limited to 5 minutes or less.  From the hours of 7:30 am to 9:00 am they will knock at the door to alert you they are swapping the water meter.  After 9:00 am if they begin the water meter swap process and the water meter is registering water usage they will knock at your door to notify you they are swapping the water meter after 9:00 am.  Saturday water meter installation hours will be 8:00 am to 3:00 pm and they will knock at the door only if the meter is registering water usage.

Many Thanks,

Milcrofton Utility District

Service Line Upgrade

Milcrofton is currently working on a system wide service line upgrade for customers we’ve deemed needing a service upgrade.  Over the next five months these services will be replaced.  You’ll receive notification either on your mailbox or at your front door a few days before the work begins.  The notice will give you contact information if you need to reach the contractor during or after the service line upgrade is completed.

Milcrofton Utility District service line upgrade goes from our public water main to the District’s water meter box.  The water meter box and its components are being exchanged during this upgrade.  On the other side of the meter box the contractor will be reconnecting the customer’s service line to the meter setter components within the meter box.

Once the service line upgrades are completed the District plans on a system wide water meter change out program to begin.  The new water meter system will give our customer’s options for notifications or alerts based on user preferences you define as well as past usage history to review at your convenience.  Giving daily alerts and past history viewable at anytime is vital for our customers to know when water was consumed and allows high usage or leak to be corrected before it’s too costly or waste anymore water.  The meter change out program will hopefully begin in January of 2018.
