What is involved with a typical installation?

The Village has hired Siemens to install your new water meter. Siemens will schedule an appointment with you at a convenient time for you.  Siemens personnel will need access to wherever the meter is located.  It could be in your basement, utility room, crawl space, garages, etc. An adult (minimum of 18 years old) must be present while we work inside the premises. Please make sure that there are no obstructions around your meter that may hamper access to the meter. 

Under normal circumstances, the installation will take approximately 30 minutes. Momentary water service interruptions will occur to change out the meter. 

Siemens employees will provide proper identification when installing your meters.
