LIBERTY — The Liberty Utilities Department and installation contractor RTS Water Solutions will begin upgrading Liberty’s water meter infrastructure and meter reading technology to a new, automated Advanced Metering Infrastructure.
All residential and commercial water meters that have traditionally been read manually every month will be replaced or retrofitted with meters that communicate water usage data automatically using radio transmitters. These new meters will eliminate the need for water bills based on usage estimates (as occasionally occurs in the winter).
It will take about 10 months to replace every meter in Liberty, according to a city press release.
