Canadian water and wastewater services provider Aquatera Utilities has contracted Neptune Technology Group to replace water meters for 1,500 customers throughout the City of Grande Prairie in Alberta, Canada.

As water meters reach the end of their lifespan of around 20 years, Aquatera will replace them at no cost to the property owner. The water meters offer high-resolution low-flow leak detection, positive displacement, and an impact-resistant register.

“Our meter exchange programme ensures continued accuracy of your water bill and improved reading efficiencies,” said Andrea Gallivan, account services manager for Aquatera. “This new technology allows us to monitor water usage remotely, detect intermittent and continuous leaks, and encourage water conservation.”

Neptune Technology will make a start on the replacements in mid-August 2019, with all affected customers to receive a notice and information detailing the process, as well as how to book a replacement.

The upgrade of water meters is mandatory in accordance with the City of Grande Prairie bylaws.
