Automatic Meter Upgrades

The City of Bellaire currently has over 7,600 water meters within its utility system.  Starting in April 2017, Bellaire will replace every water meter in the City.  The new water meters are equipped with advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), which allows the City to automatically and electronically read meters.  These readings will be uploaded to a customer portal which will provide real time information to each customer.

The City is working with Siemens and Pedal Valves (PVI) to replace each meter.  The Siemens/PVI teams will be properly identified in trucks and uniforms with the SIEMENS/PVI Meter Team Logo (pictured).   Residents will be notified by a door hanger approximately two weeks in advance of when their meter(s) will be replaced.  The contractors will not have to come inside your home or in your back yard.  If you have any special needs or considerations, please contact the City at 713-662-8170.  We will be happy to accommodate you however we can.

With these new meters, residents will receive more accurate meter readings and access to their usage data.  With this information, residents can get a clearer picture of their usage history, allowing them to better determine their water needs.
