The City of Rehoboth Beach is committed to providing residents with safe, reliable, and cost-efficient water services. Water meters deteriorate with age, losing accuracy as their moving parts wear out. As a result, the meter’s gauge slows down and is unable to effectively track the total amount of water that moves through the meter. The planned replacement of older meters ensures customers will be billed fairly and accurately. To help increase the efficiency of the water meter reading process, the City’s Water Department routinely replaces older water meters that have outlived their useful life when maintenance is no longer viable.
The City contracted with Harry Caswell, Inc., and replaced approximately 185 water meters located at residences in North Shores in late fall of 2019. For more information about this water meter replacement project, please contact the Communications Department at 302-227-6181 ext. 522 or [email protected].
