Euless getting new water meters
Starting this month, technicians will replace all of the water meters in the city because the current equipment is outdated.
Assistant City Manager Chris Barker said Euless is replacing around 14,000 meters for residential and business customers, as the current meters are at least 20 years old.
The city got a low-interest loan from the Texas Water Development Board for the project, Barker said.
Water customers will receive notices from the city’s contractor, Utiliuse, 48 hours before their new meter will be installed.
A technician wearing a badge will also knock on the door to notify residents that their water will be shut off temporarily while the new meters are installed. People don’t have to be at home when the work takes place.
The city has a web page at bit.ly/1RDPBYj where residents can go for more information and to watch a video that explains the program.
