Winnipeg’s annual water meter reading program began on Monday as city staff visit homes weekdays from 2:30 p.m. to dusk.
Each meter reader will have photo identification, a hand-held computer and a uniform with the City of Winnipeg logo. The city asks homeowners to ask to see identification before allowing a meter reader into their home.
Meter readers will only knock on front and side doors, not backdoors.
The city requires at least one accurate meter reading per year from each household. If you miss the visit, a meter reading card will be left and you can submit the details online.
The program will continue until the end of August.
