Radio Read and Customer Billing Program
The SW Regional Water District continues to install radio read units in many new and old pits across the district. Our intention for the future is to eventually have all customers be equipped with the radio read unit either in the pit or above ground near the water pit. This will allow the District to read the meter from a transmitter/receiver in a vehicle, thus eliminating the customers requirement of reading the meter on a monthly basis. By electronically reading the meter monthly the District would be able to mail to you the current reading along with the appropriate charge of useage for the month.
Meters which have one million or more gallons useage are replaced routinely and considered at that time to be eligible or not for radio read installation. Unfortunately some locations are in areas that are not feasible to install due to poor reception and/or excessive distance from the current radio read perimeter. These uneligible sites will be reconsidered when the active area perimeter expands engulfing the previous locations.
Currently the District has approximately one thousand plus customers on the radio read system, which is over half of the 1970 benefit users as of the end of 2014. Historicaly new radio read additions have been between fifty and eighty customers annually. Another twenty-five to fifty are added also when the one million plus gallon meters are replaced. Progress continues on new radio read sites along with the normal maintenance/replacement on the older meters and radio read units as time and money allows.
