A program to replace water meters in all residential and commercial structures within the Village of Shorewood is scheduled to begin in early 2020. The Wisconsin Public Service Commission requires that all water meters be replaced on a 20-year cycle. Shorewood's most recent meter replacement program was initiated in 1995.
The Village of Shorewood/Shorewood Water Utility and Village Board are in the process of selecting a vendor for this program. It is anticipated that a vendor and meter reading system will be approved by the Village Board in October 2019. Meter installation will likely start in early 2020. Access to the interior of most homes will be required.
The new meters and reading system will provide better customer service, improve operation efficiencies and provide greater access to data.
