Starting Monday, September 21, the City’s Waterworks Department will be busy reading water meters in Steinbach. These readings will provide the basis for the quarterly utility bills issued at the beginning of November.
Meter reading is conducted by two Waterworks Department employees and takes 2-3 days to complete. These city employees can be identified by their safety vests and the City of Steinbach identification cards that they carry. The readings are not invasive, unless the meter is located inside the house or the read-out is not working, in which case city employees will request entry into the house. The city's wireless meter reading system allows staff to receive readings from the sidewalk, eliminating the need for access to private properties and also reducing reading times.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your water meter, please contact Manager of Waterworks, Mike Heppner at 204.346.6214 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The wireless device used to read and record meter readings is seen below.
