Water Meter Replacement Program

Residential Water Meter Replacement

Installing New Water Meters to Ensure Precise Readings and Accurate Billing.

The City of Sampleville Water Utility provides safe, clean drinking water to all its residents. As part of routine maintenance of the Public Water System, the City of Sampleville will be replacing the water meter in your home that calculates your water use for billing purposes.

HydroCorp of Troy, MI has contracted with the City of Sampleville and will be completing this Water Meter Replacement Program in your area. These installations can usually be completed in less than 30 minutes. Replacement of your old water meter is free and there will be only a brief interruption in water service during the appointment. After the new meter is installed, you can expect improved customer services and better accuracy of your water bill.

An Important Community-Wide Safety Project

Check Your Valve(s): This is an Appropriate Time to Update Old Shutoffs.

It’s possible that, during meter replacement, an old or damaged water shutoff valve can break. If this occurs, repairs are the homeowner’s responsibility, not the contractor’s.

Prior to scheduling the installation of your new meter, it is highly recommended that property owners check their existing shutoff valve for proper operation. If the valve is not functioning properly, repairs should be made prior to the installation. A State Licensed Plumbing Contractor must be used to perform this service.
