Winnsboro begins Blythewood metering installations

WINNSBORO – The Town of Winnsboro is planning to begin installation of an advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) system in Cobblestone Park on Monday, Nov 29. The system is from Raleigh-based Sensus.

“This innovative system will replace monthly manual meter reads with a wireless system that collects multiple remote reads per day, allowing for better leak detection, increased billing accuracy and improved customer service,” said Town Manager Jason Taylor. “This system will help the Town with its renewed commitment to improving our timeliness with billing cycles and ensuring accuracy in readings,” he said. 

During installation, contractors working on behalf of the Town of Winnsboro will interrupt water service. Before leaving the site, crews will test the new meter by running about 10 gallons of water from an exterior hose or faucet. Door hangers will be left at the main entrance to the property informing the resident or business owner of the status of the visit (installation complete, installation pending; water was being used, or unable to access water meter).

Contractors (US Bronco Services) will be supervised by Winnsboro staff, carry proper identification and have successfully completed a comprehensive background check; contractor vehicles will also be clearly marked.
