Toronto launches city-wide Water Meter Program
Toronto Water is beginning a six-year project to install or replace water meters in every home and business in the city with more efficient and up-to-date technology. Each new meter will be equipped with an automated reading device that will eliminate the need for City staff to enter premises to obtain a water meter reading. The new meters will also help to improve water conservation, save operational costs and ensure fair and equitable billing for every Toronto Water customer. This mandatory program will be rolled out ward by ward, beginning in Ward 18 (Davenport) and Ward 28 (Toronto Centre-Rosedale).

Join Councillor Glenn De Baeremaeker (Ward 38 Scarborough Centre), Chair of the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee, city staff and local homeowners at the site of the first residential installation to officially launch the Toronto Water Meter Program.

Date: Wednesday, April 28
Time: 10:30 a.m. (about one hour)
Location: 351 St. Clarens Ave. (East of Lansdowne Avenue between Bloor Street West and College Street) Note: St. Clarens Avenue is a one-way street, running north-bound.
