A Message to Glasco Water District Customers



Please read the message about the new Sensus meters and the automatic water meter reading system that is being deployed.  The new meters:

  • Address the problem that the current meter exceed 2014 EPA standards for lead content
  • Only transmit twice per year, when triggered by remote reading devices to obtain meter readings.  There has been miscommunication and confusion, involving comparisons to "smart" electric meters, which transmit almost continuous signals.
