The City of Raymore is pleased to announce the implementation of a water meter conversion program.
This program will replace approximately 4,000 aging water meters in our community– most well beyond their useful life and prone to inaccurate readings and failures– with new residential water meters.
The new residential water meters will automatically transmit water meter readings to City Hall, eliminating the need to manually read each water meter.
Benefits of the new water meters:
- Extremely accurate
- No moving parts, long-lasting
- Alarms that alert us to an issue, such as an unusually high water usage over a short period of time. We can contact you to see if you have a running toilet or a leak so you can take care of it immediately, rather than finding out when you receive your next bill.
- Improved customer service and efficiency.
Water meter conversion started June 3, 2019. The water meter replacements are expected to last through September.
Independent testing has confirmed the accuracy of these meters. Using the latest technology, the meters have no moving parts. The meters can read water passing through the meter down to 0.027 gallon per minute. Each radio frequency device on a meter has a unique identification number, which is transmitted with the meter reading. The ID number is compared to your account to ensure there is a match.
If you still have questions, meters can be manually read. Just give us a call at 816-331-5182.
