After the new system goes into effect, meters will no longer be read in person by a meter technician since the meter will transmit all information automatically. However, GMWW isn’t losing any jobs. Employees who currently work as meter readers will be transferred to other jobs within the company. All the installation for the new meters will be completed by local workforce rather than contracting elsewhere for the work.
GMWW customers will be able to set up user accounts to monitor the equipment and water usage through the company’s website. More information about the new meters and usage monitoring system will soon be available on the quick links section of the Greensburg Municipal Water and Wastewater website as well. Any questions or comments about the planned changes may be directed to GMWW Utilities Office Manager Donna Lecher at 812-663-5621. If anyone sees someone tampering with the repeaters, please contact Donna Lecher at the GMWW office.
“We are more than excited to develop a meter reading system that will provide our consumers the tools to monitor their daily water consumption, compare current water consumption to previous periods and to configure individual alerts, as well as set budgets for water conservation goals,” said Lecher.
