Update 1/30/17: The project is still in design phase and there is not an approved MSBU at this point, so we cannot provide homeowner cost, construction or timing details. Contracted surveyors are working in the area under the project's design engineering firm, Giffels-Webster.

Fixed Based Meter Change Out Program

The County’s water infrastructure serves a wide geographic area with three (3) generally distinct service areas: West/Central, Middle/East and South County.
In 2012, the County solicited competitive bids for the purchase of fixed base meters to be installed throughout the county over a 10-year period of time.
County staff were installing the new meters based on the 10-year replacement schedule in place.
The cost of the meters, however, was only locked in for five (5) years and when met with the higher price per meter, the County opted to seek financial assistance to fast-track the purchase and installation of fixed base meters.
Using existing staff, Charlotte County Utilities installed 15,562 fixed base meters over a 4-year period of time. In order to speed up the installation process and take advantage of the lower meter costs, Charlotte County is using an outside vendor for installations. As of March 2017 more than 49,134 have been converted to fixed base meters.
