We’re putting control in your hands! Through the website, the system allows you to monitor and manage your own water consumption. Now you can monitor your water usage, pinpoint sources of leaks and unwanted flow, and ultimately save on your utility bill. Create your own water conservation strategy and see the results in action! The meter registers offer technological and operational advantages. They operate on a fixed network system, which will allow readings to be collected through a remote download twice a day. To put that into perspective, readings are currently collected once a month — and only by driving past every property in town. Master Meter Products Canada Inc., a professional water meter service company that worked on behalf of the Town to complete this project.
Water Meter Project FAQ
Was this upgrade mandatory?
In accordance with the Town’s Utilities Bylaw, every property in town must have a valid, functioning water meter. Even if your meter is still functioning as it should, the upgrade is required to ensure the continuous, uninterrupted collection of data.
Why did this upgrade happen?
Have previous meter readings been wrong?
Did these upgrades cause my water bills to go up?
Isn't Radio Frequency (RF) Energy that is associated with wireless (smart) meters bad for our health?
Here’s what Health Canada has to say on the matter:
“Unlike cellular phones, where the transmitter is held close to the head and much of the RF energy that is absorbed is localized to one specific area, RF energy from smart meters is typically transmitted at a much greater distance from the human body. This results in very low RF exposure levels across the entire body, much like exposure to AM or FM radio broadcast signals. Since RF energy exposure levels are far below Canadian and international safety limits, Health Canada does not consider that any precautionary measures are needed to reduce RF energy exposure from smart meters.”
Rest assured, all installations will be carried out in a compliant manner.
