Water meters are read each month. The reading date depends on which “Zone” a property resides in. The Utility Department currently operates a Sensus VXU reading unit which allows numerous meters to be read in a matter of minutes. An MXU unit is directly connected to your water meter. The VXU reading unit “wakes up” the MXU and sends the reading from the water meter to the software program.

MXUs operate on a single lithium battery. These batteries need to be replaced every 7 to 10 years. If the battery in your MXU needs replaced, the utility office will contact you via letter to request a repair appointment. There is no charge for this service
