Program Overview

Elk Grove Village is embarking on a program that will replace about 10,600 manual read water meters with new radio read meters.  The modern meters will replace older, mechanical units with new technology that will help identify high water usage and potential leaks.  The new meters will result in smarter water use for customers, and enhanced water conservation opportunities. The new meters and remote will automatically transmit data wirelessly and eliminate the need for Village staff to manually read each meter.  This allows the Village to operate more efficiently and reduce costs by preventing recording errors and eliminating time-consuming manual meter reading.
