I never see a meter reader. Is my meter being read?
Meters are read monthly by a meter reader. Our meter readers are fast, precise, and read an average of 300-500 meters per day, so you may not always catch the opportunity to see them in action. If your reading was estimated for the month on your bill (because of flooded conditions, meters covered, etc) you will receive notification advising such.
LCU has installed AMR (Automated Meter Reading) water meters for over 8,000 residences and businesses within Lee County. AMR meters have an ERT device (Encoder, Receiver, Transmitter) connected to it that operates under a low-power radio frequency. Meter Services staff drive by the meter to collect meter reads. Each ERT has it's own identification number so there is no confusion as to which service address belongs to which water meter.
