Water meter replacement begins


Water meter replacement begins


Date: May 10, 2011

An extensive water meter replacement program has begun in the city of Sarasota.

About 17,000 residential and commercial meters will be upgraded to an advanced system that will allow the meters to be read from radio receivers in moving vehicles and fixed receivers.

The replacement program has begun in the northwest part of the city. A notice will be attached to a customer’s trash can about one week before a meter is upgraded, and a door hanger will be placed on a front door the day before a replacement.

The water will need to be turned off for up to 30 minutes, while a meter is replaced.

The entire program will take about eight months.
