What does that really mean?
Water conservation refers to reducing the usage of water and recycling of wastewater for different purposes such as cleaning, manufacturing, and irrigation. Water conservation helps save energy, protects wild animals, and prevents people from using so much water that it cannot be replaced with rain. Water is the source of life for every living thing.

Water Conservation tips can be useful and can be found on the internet at http://www.conservewatergeorgia.net/

Saving water can help save the planet and help you save dollars at the same time, especially in summer, when our water related recreational activities increase.


How can I save money on my water and sewer bill?
Water Conservation

Water conservation is the most cost-effective and environmentally sound way to reduce our demand for water. This stretches our supplies farther and protects places like John T. Briscoe Jr. Reservoir.
Water Conservation Tips
Saving Water & Money...Twice


Verify that your home is leak free. Read your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter does not read exactly the same, there is a hidden leak.
Repair dripping faucets by replacing washers. If your faucet is dripping at the rate of one drop per second, you can expect to waste 2,700 gallons per year.
Retrofit all wasteful household faucets by installing aerators with flow restrictions.
Insulate your water pipes. You'll get hot water faster and avoid wasting water.
Do not hose down your driveway or sidewalk; use a broom instead saving hundreds of gallons of water.
Check all hoses, connectors and spigots regularly. Replace or add washers if you find leaks.
If you have a pool, consider a new water-saving pool filter. A single back flushing with a traditional filter uses from 180 to 250 gallons of water.





A: No, you do not need to be home. Work will be performed Monday-Saturday between 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.

Q: How much will the meter cost me?

A: There is no charge for the meter.

Q: Will my water bill increase?

A: Not necessarily; however, as meters age, they tend to run slower and lose accuracy over time.
Depending on the age and accuracy of your existing meter, your bill could change based on the consumption associated with the new meter. The new meters will simply record consumption more accurately.

Q: What if there is a leak at the meter or any problems after the meter is replaced?

A: Please call the City of Monroe at 770- 266-5330 and speak with Patrice Broughton or call City Hall at 770-267-3429 to speak with the Utilities Department.


Water Meter Change Out Project

Starting June 1, 2014, the City of Monroe will be conducting a comprehensive water meter
replacement program. This program will replace approximately 6,000 meters to an automated
meter reading (AMR) meter. This will require all water meters to be replaced. An AMR meter
will eliminate the need for someone to physically read the meter each month and will allow meter
readers to remotely read each meter without stopping at each residence individually. The City of
Monroe has contracted Utility Solutions of America (USA) to do the Water Meter Change out. If
you have any questions or concerns, you should call Patrice Broughton at the City of Monroe. The
contact information is 770-266-5330.
Meter Readings
Water Meter Change-out Project

Data Logging
The 100W+ stores 40 days of hourly consumption information, which can be collected by the fixed networks system to leverage real time data collection or can be read by mobile or hand held systems. This data is presented in four basic use cases:
A reading from any hour within the last 40 days
A set of 24 consecutive hourly readings
A set of 40 daily readings
A set of 40 days of hourly interval data are available even in mobile mode

Meter Reading
With the new meter, you will need a LED flashlight to shine into the light sensor. This will allow the meter reading to show up on your screen.
Keeping up with your meter readings allows you to monitor your water usage.
Monitoring your water usage will help you determine how much water you are using each month which will help you determine leaks and help with conservation efforts.

Q: Are the meters the same as the
meters that are being replaced?

A: No, the meters will be replaced with automated ones that transmit the meter readings to a mobile device. These automated readers will eliminate the need for a meter reader to physically read the meter; therefore, improve the efficiency of meter readings.

Q: Why do we need to replace the meters?

A: As with any measuring device, meters can become less accurate as they age. Water meters have a useful life of approximately 15 years after which the accuracy will diminish.

Q: Who will install the meters?

A: Utility Solutions of America (USA), the contractor, will replace or upgrade approximately 6,000 meters throughout Monroe, starting on June 1, 2014.

Q: Will my water service be interrupted during the installation?

A: Yes, there will be a temporary service interruption, typically about 15 to 30 minutes while the meter is being replaced.

Q: Do I need to be home for my meter
replacement to work?
