Water Meter Replacement Program

Since November, 2013, the Clearfield Municipal Authority has continued a mandatory water meter upgrade program, which will replace all water meters and transmitters in the service area.

New iPERL and Omni meters are part of upgrading the water system to meet new standards as mandated by the Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act, an amendment to the Safe Drinking Water Act.  This legislation was signed by President Obama on January 4, 2011 and went into effect on January 4, 2014.

The new meters comply with and exceed the requirements set by the Safe Drinking Water Act by containing zero lead.  Additionally, because the EPA’s contaminant level goal for lead in drinking water is set at zero, the new meters aim to continue to be in compliance with all future changes to the NSF standards and government law regarding lead; and are compliant and tested to American Water Works Association standards.

Replacing outdated meters will improve the efficiency of meter reading, and new transmitters will enable meter readings to be transmitted via radio frequency to the meter reader as they drive down the street.  New meters also provide enhanced leak detection features.

Employees of the Authority will be forming the work.  They will carry photo identification and will drive a vehicle with the Clearfield Municipal Authority name and logo.

Water service to the property will be interrupted temporarily during the installation – typically about 15 to 30 minutes.

Employees continue going door-to-door to replace meters.  However, if you need a specific date or time for your appointment for this, please contact us at (814) 765-9609 to schedule.
