The DC Water Meter Rehabilitation Project will focus on replacing meters and meter transmitting units that are nearing the end of their useful life in various locations throughout the District of Columbia. This project supports the rehabilitation of DC Water’s Automated Meter Reading (AMR) system, which uses radio transmitters wired to water meters to convey data to a network of radio receivers. The new meters and transmitting units will have better capabilities compared to the last series of meters and promote timely and accurate monthly bills for customers. The contractors completing the work will have DC Water photo identification, uniforms with patches and hard hats with decals identifying them as a DC Water contractor.
SCOPE OF WORK
- Replacement of about 88,000 small diameter water meters and meter transmitting units.
January 2017 – June 2018
