Water Meter Installation Program Q & A’s

Municipality Logo New one (3)

The County of Antigonish is undergoing a water meter installation program. The water meter program was developed to improve equity and reduce water consumption. Water metering allows residents to pay for the actual amount of water they use, rather than being billed on a tap count/flat rate basis. Neptune Technology Group has been contracted by the County to install the water meter at properties serviced by a municipal water utility.

Follow the Link to a list of Water Meter Q & A’s: Water Meter Q & A’s

If you do not find the information you are looking for, please feel free to contact Neptune Technology Group or the Municipality.  Contact information can be found in the Q & A’s link.
