How does the village know how much water you have used each month without going inside and looking at the meter ?
There are "eyes" or sensors that are attached to your meter inside, and located outside your house. The village of Elsie has two types of meters.
The first style is a black sensor that is mounted to the side of your house. The other stlye is called a "pit meter". This is a pit in your yard, with a locking cap on it. On top of the cap is also a black sensor.
Each month our DPW crew walks around town scanning each sensor, then the data is linked into the billing system at the village office.
To help our DPW crews Please keep your water meter "eye" clear of dirt, snow, leaves, shrubs etc. The DPW needs to be able to access it. If you have any questions on where your sensor is located please give the village offica a call and a DPW crew member will meet with you.
