  • Water Meter Replacement Project

    to begin Tuesday, October 12

    The City of Nelsonville water department will start the City’s water meter replacement project on Tuesday, October 12, 2021, and will last approximately four months. During this project residents will experience brief water interruptions to their house while the new water meter is being replaced.

    Once your water meter is replaced, it is recommended you flush your home water system for 5 to 10 minutes. This is best done by using an outside spigot or your bathtub. DO NOT use a sink faucet because they have filter screens. By running your water system for 5 to 10 minutes, it will clear any sediment from your water lines. Individual water meter replacements in Nelsonville should only take about 15 minutes per meter.

    The Village of Buchtel water meter replacements will begin on Monday, October 18, 2021. Buchtel water meter replacements will take longer because new meter pits are also being installed.

    When the new system is completed the water meters will be read two to three times a day using a new wireless system. Water customers will also be able to log into a website to view their water usage at any time. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this project.
