Meter Replacement Project
Water Meter Replacement ProjectWater Meter
Since the early 2000s, all Burnsville residences and businesses have been equipped with automated water meters. Rather than requiring a “meter reader” or self-reporting of meters – the system is able to transmit data electronically to a utility worker driving through the City streets.
 
Next Generation Water Meters
In the summer of 2016, the City will begin a large-scale meter replacement project that will eventually upgrade all commercial and residential meters within Burnsville. These new meters will automatically transmit meter reads to the utility department at City Hall.

The new system will provide many benefits to customers – including a 20-year life expectancy, real-time data on water usage and real-time leak detection. It will also allow meters to be read more cost effectively.

The City will be working with utility contractors HD Supply Waterworks and Utiliuse to procure and install new Sensus
water meters. Starting this summer, the City will identify 1,500 residential and commercial meters to be part of a pilot
installation. Full roll-out (beginning with commercial meters) is expected to begin later this year. The hope is to have
all meters replaced City-wide by 2018.
