Mandatory Village-wide Water Meter Replacement Program to begin

water meter updated

The Village of Lombard will begin the Water Meter Replacement Program the week of December 11, 2017. The program will replace outdated water meters in residential homes and businesses with upgraded water meters throughout Lombard.

This program is mandatory for ALL residences and is necessary because the Village’s water meters are over 25 years old and have exceeded their useful life expectancy.  There is no cost to residents for this program.

The residential water meters that were recently tested, had an accuracy of 93.6%, which means that around 6.4% of Lombard's water usage was unaccounted for, totaling an estimated $440,000 annual loss in revenue for the Village.

The Village will be replacing approximately 10,500 water meters and 13,500 meter interface units (MIUs) over the next 18 – 24 months for a total project cost of $3.78 million. Funding for this project is provided by a low interest loan from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency’s Public Water Supply Loan Program with an interest rate of 1.76%. The new water meters will decrease non-revenue water, increase water consumption accounting, improve water meter reading efficiencies, and provide real time information to residents about their water consumption.

The Village has contracted with Water Resources, Inc., and its affiliated company, Water Services Company, to install the new water metering equipment, which requires access to residential and commercial properties.

Residents will receive a letter from the Village requesting to schedule an appointment for the water meter replacement.  You will only be able to schedule an appointment when you receive your letter with the unique registration number.  An anticipated installation map will be provided atwww.villageoflombard.org/watermeters.

For more information please visit www.villageoflombard.org/watermeters or contact Public Works at (630) 620-5740 or via email at publicworks@villageoflombard.org with any questions.
