Water meter installation has begun in Vermilion. All 6,000+ water meters in Vermilion are being replaced.
“New efficient meters will benefit both commercial and residential customers of City of Vermilion water,” stated Mayor Forthofer. “The new meters will transmit readings daily. No more estimated readings or meter readers at your house.”
According to the mayor, most meters are in residents' front yards. If you have an indoor meter, you will be contacted in advance by the replacement crew to arrange a visit.
Meter replacement is paid for by Water Funds and a low rate long term bond.
“No rate increase for this project,” said the mayor.
