Annual summer water meter reading program begins Wednesday, May 8, 2013

May 06, 2013

Winnipeg, MB – Starting Wednesday, May 8, 2013, and continuing until the end of August, City of Winnipeg water meter readers will be visiting homes weekdays between 2:30 p.m. and dusk.

Meter readers will be dressed in dark blue pants or shorts, and a light blue striped shirt with a City of Winnipeg Water and Waste logo over the pocket.  All readers wear photo identification and carry a hand-held computer.   Residents are urged to check identification before allowing a meter reader into their home.  Meter readers only record water meter readings, and do not collect money.   Regular meter readings prevent estimated bills and can signal costly plumbing leaks.   For more information, residents can call 204-986-2455 or email utilitybill@winnipeg.ca   Click the following link for a photo of the City of Winnipeg water meter reader uniform: http://www.winnipeg.ca/cao/media/imageLinks/MeterReader2013.jpg
