Minneapolis Water Meter Replacement Project

Beginning in 2018, the City of Minneapolis is replacing 100,000 residential and commercial water meters as part of a project to upgrade the current water meter reading system. The project is expected to take five years to complete. The City has partnered with the manufacturer Aclara to assist with the meter-upgrade project. Both City and Aclara meter technicians will perform the work. Customers will not be charged for the upgraded equipment.

How will it affect City customers?
