Smart Meter Installation Project

Valley County Water District is upgrading water meters to smart meter communication devices. 

With the new advanced metering devices, the District will receive automatic meter reads on your water consumption. This consistent stream of water-use history can alert both the District and customers to pipe breaks, toilet leaks, and broken valves. In turn, customers have the ability to manage their monthly bills more efficiently, reduce water waste and prevent possible water damage. It will also help reduce greenhouse gas emissions through reduced vehicle miles, emissions and fuel consumption. 

This advanced technology improves water conservation and operational efficiencies.
