[ARCHIVED] Water Meter Installations Continue

The final phase of Roseville water meter installations are about to begin. The City of Roseville will finish replacing outdated water meters in residents’ homes by the end of the year.

For the past five years, the city has been upgrading water meters to an automated reading system (AMR). By using AMR technologies the city remotely reads water meters.

Installations will begin again in June and continue for the rest of 2015. The City will complete about one-third of the installations and has contracted with Ferguson Waterworks to help complete the remaining installations.

AMR systems eliminate the need for manual meter reads, providing a savings to the City. Additionally, radio reads provide daily usage information and allow the City to provide better customer service to our residents.

In addition to the meter installations sump pump inspections will also be conducted. City Code requires that discharge into the City’s sanitary sewer system must conform to the Metropolitan Council Environmental Services (MCES) Waste Discharge Rules. Unpolluted water, such as rain water, storm water, groundwater, and water collected from foundation drains, may not be discharged into the sanitary sewer system.

Cities have found that some sump pumps have been installed incorrectly; rather than discharging water outdoors, clear water goes into the sanitary sewer system. This adds unnecessary strain on the sanitary sewer system. To comply with MCES directives to reduce inflow and infiltration (I/I) the City of Roseville has implemented the sump pump inspection program.

Completing sump pump inspections in residential homes will give the city preliminary information on how many non-conforming connections there are, and whether this is a major contributing factor to the City’s I/I problem. Staff will use the data that are collected to develop further I/I reduction plans in the City and make recommendations to the City Council.
