No, there is no charge for the new meter at the time of installation. A monthly meter fee is billed based on meter size. The fees are collected over time to cover the costs of routine replacement.
Installations began in August, 2015, and were done in phases through 2018. When a water meter is replaced or AMI unit is added, you do not have to be home at the time of installation. If you are home, the installer will notify you in person before installation begins.
The County hired Neptune Technology Group and UMS to change our meter reading system. The workers will wear UMS shirts & badges and be in clearly marked vehicles that identify them as contractors with Athens-Clarke County.
As meters age, they tend to run slower and may not measure all the water going through them. To ensure all ratepayers contribute fairly to the cost of water treatment and delivery, meters are routinely scheduled for replacement. Meter replacement is taking place as the AMI System is being introduced. The replacement meters are the same positive displacement meters ACC has used and relied on for years. A new meter will record consumption more accurately. Depending on the age and accuracy of your existing meter, you might see a change in your bill.
