Ahead of schedule
Charlottetown’s effort to have all its residents and businesses install water meters is going much better than originally thought.
In fact, the city is two years ahead of schedule.
Coun. Eddie Rice, chairman of the Water and Sewer Utility committee, reports to date there have been 3,815 water meters installed and 610 have been scheduled for installation. That leaves only 407 left to make appointments.The city had originally planned to have all residents and businesses on a water meter by the end of 2019.
“We put a lot of pressure on our staff to get it done,’’ Rice said. “It was good. People thought it was never going to happen because people were against it but if you look at all the stats and the water consumption and everything that we’ve saved it was just a matter of them getting on with it.’’
Customers are reminded there is no surcharge to make the switch. Call Bevan Brothers at 902-368-3456 to book an appointment.
