City of Walker Begins Advanced Metering Installation

Wireless water meter reading improves efficiency

CITY OF WALKER, LOUISIANA – The CITY OF WALKER will begin installation of an advanced metering system from Utility Metering Solutions (UMS). Advanced metering technology enables the wireless transmission of water meter readings directly to the CITY OF WALKER Public Works department. This innovative system will collect multiple reads per day, allowing for better leak detection, billing accuracy, and improved customer service.

“Utility Metering Solutions is a leader in the deployment of utility infrastructure systems and resource conservation, and supports our commitment to maintaining a high quality of life for our citizens through cost-effective, innovative programs. The new system will also help the CITY OF WALKER analyze and efficiently detect and minimize water loss.” “Advanced metering also supports our commitment to preserving and protecting our environment by reducing carbon emissions as a result of taking meter readers off of the road, enhancing our ability to quickly detect and stop leaks, and providing customers with up-to-date water usage data so they can improve their efforts to conserve."

The upgrade which is planned to begin June 2019 is expected to take approximately 5 months to complete, Customers will receive a letter/notice prior to installation beginning in their area. During installation, contractors working on behalf of the CITY OF WALKER will interrupt water service and replace the existing water meter. Before leaving the site, crews will test the new water meter by running about 1 to 2 gallons of water from an exterior hose or faucet. Door hangers will be left at the main entrance to the property informing the customer of the status of the visit.   

Contractors will be supervised by CITY OF WALKER staff, will carry UMS badges, wear yellow UMS tee-shirts, jackets or vests, and have successfully completed a comprehensive background check; contractor vehicles will also be clearly marked with the “UMS” logo.

To learn more, please contact Ira Cook at (225) 664-3123.
