New Meters

The Mayes County Rural Water District 5 Board after much research and consideration has decided to begin replacing the current meters with new AMR (Automatic Read Meters).   Many Districts are switching to this method and it is predicted that most will be using AMRs in some form in the near future due to the ability to obtain more accurate and timely readings and lessen water loss.  The District recently purchased one hundred of these meters and the reading software.  The installation of them will begin in the Pryor area at the beginning of the system.  The meters will still be read by Lee Inspection for the current time, until the reading software is interfaced with the District’s utility software and the District employees have completed training to use the reading software.

  If you notice a difference in the meter or have concerns please call the office to see if you are one of the members assigned an AMR meter. You may also notice a slight increase in your water usage and bill, as the new meters will be much more accurate at recording usage and miss less gallons than the old meters.

   All meters are the property of the District and are not to be tampered with at anytime.  

 

 

 WATER PRESSURE

If high pressure is a problem, customers are responsible for having a regulator installed on their side of the meter. The District does not provide regulators.

  SHUTTING OFF THE WATER

It is recommended that all new construction have one or more shut off valves installed somewhere on the members side of the meter.  For older lines, if you are installing a new regulator it is a good idea to install a shut off valve at the same time.  The shut off valve in the District meter can is not intended to be used for shutting off the water on a regular basis, but for emergencies and occasional use only.  Excessive use of this valve may cause it to not operate in an emergency or to leak.
