[ARCHIVED] Water Meter Replacement Program

Water Mtr - Cellular

The City of Portland is beginning a water meter replacement program in homes and businesses throughout the City. Most water meters in the program are 20 years old or older and have reached the end of their projected life cycle.

The meter and reading device replacement will be performed by SLC Meter. Installers will carry identification and will be driving marked vehicles. City of Portland DPW personnel will manage and work with SLC and residents to ensure the work is done properly and efficiently. The installers will need to enter the home to replace the meter and upgrade the reading device. The work should take between ½ to 1 hour per home to complete. A new cellular transmitter (CT) will be connected to the meter and installed above it in the basement or crawl space. The old outside visual reader will be removed or left in place at your request. 

*Please schedule an appointment by visiting and clicking on the appointment link for the City of Portland or call 1-800-335-1448.

Hours are Tuesday through Friday from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. and Saturday from 8:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.

If you should have any questions or concerns, please call the DPW at 517-647-2948 Monday through Friday 8:00 A.M. to 3:30 P.M.
