The City of Danville Water Distribution System, dating back to the late 1800s, is made up of approximately 265 miles of water mains that serves more than 11,200 customers and provides water to four water districts.
The Water Distribution Department has 11 full time employees who are responsible for maintenance, making taps, reading meters, work orders, and service requests.
Meter Change Out Program
This Department is currently active in a meter change out program where new meters are being installed for an automated meter reading system (AMR). This system adds a meter and a transmitter into the meter pit. The transmitter sends a radio signal with the meter reading to a receiver that is located in a vehicle which records the reading on a computer.
This takes out the human factor when reading the water meter and also shortens the amount of time it takes to get the meters read.
