(Sheridan, Wyo.) — Most water meters in Sheridan County are about 20 years old and in need of replacement. The City of Sheridan will be replacing water meters county-wide this fall, and will host a public meeting on the project this Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Sheridan County YMCA, according to the Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce calendar
City staff will be present to discuss the water meter replacement project.
Public information sessions are being held on two dates: Wednesday, April
6, and Tuesday, April 12, at 6 p.m.
Later this year, the City of Sheridan and the Sheridan Area Water Supply
(SAWS) - Joint Powers Board will begin installing new water meters in
approximately 9,000 locations across the county.
Meter-reading infrastructure within the water service area also will be
updated. State grants will cover half of the project costs, a significant
benefit to citizens. The remaining cost of the project will be managed with
a 20-year, 0-percent state loan. Installing meters all at once also allows
for economic bulk purchasing, efficient use of city resources, and
convenient/consistent installation for citizens.
The City will hire an experienced vendor to design the infrastructure and
to procure and install the meters.
