As part of our commitment to environmental sustainability and municipal efficiency, the Town of Banff plans to replace the existing, outdated water meters with a newer, more efficient model.
The new water meters contain zero moving parts, which will reduce costs for on-site maintenance. The new meters will also help our water services crews quickly detect water leaks on the property or adjoining water line which will reduce water waste and prevent tenants from paying for water they don’t use. Lastly, the meters can be scanned remotely from service vehicles, resulting in less intrusion into private property.
If you have received a notice in the mail, you must schedule to have your water meter replaced. Residents who do not schedule a time to have their meter changed will be subject to a fine and a possible disconnection from water services.
A notice containing details on the replacement program and information on how to book an appointment was sent out at the beginning of August.
Individual meters will take 30-90 minutes to replace. All meters are expected to be replaced by mid-October.
Your home water service will be unavailable during the 30–90-minute installation process. No other water service disruptions are expected currently.
No other services will be disrupted.
