In early February 2021, the BGJWSC mobilized its meter installation contractor, M&E Construction, to install at or about 7,500 meters at various locations across Glynn County. Each of the 4 phases of this project will take 7 to 8 months to complete and will repeat again in similar batches until all 30,000 meters have been upgraded. This staggering of upgrades will help ensure that the batteries in the radio transmitters, which we expect to have a useful life of fifteen years, do not all fail during the same period in the future.
As of March 8th, 1,534 meters have been installed, 20% of our total for this year. Each day, M&E Construction installs an average of 55 residential meters. As of today, we will begin contacting customers to schedule the replacement of large meters servicing multi-unit residential, commercial, and industrial customers.
Thanks in advance for your patience during our progress.
