Water Meter Upgrades
In an effort to provide you with improved water service and accurate billing, The Borough of Madison Water Department is upgrading its meter reading system. The upgrade will include the installation of new reading equipment and water meter.
Currently, new equipment and meters are being installed in a small area of town which includes the Madison Commons. If you are within our trial area, you will receive direct notification from us.
The installation should take less than one hour and requires access to your basement or utility room. We have currently contracted with MeterTek Utility Services Inc. to perform the work. Work within the Madison Commons is scheduled to take place between August 2 and August 20. Please contact MeterTek Utility Services Inc. at 1-800-717-0974 or visit their website at www.metertek.net to set up an appointment.
Your safety will be top priority for MeterTek Utility Services Inc. If you or anyone in your household is sick on the date of your install, we ask that you please call and re-schedule. In addition, all MeterTek Utility Services Inc. personnel must pass a daily health screening prior to reporting to work and will wear face coverings when entering your home for the install.
Customers will be able to identify MeterTek Utility Services Inc. personnel by their uniforms, photo ID badges and company marked vehicles. Do not let anyone in your home without proper identification.

My meter works perfectly fine, please don’t replace it
Although your equipment may seem to be working fine, all meters within the Borough of Madison are being upgraded over the next several years to improve our water service and accurate billing for all residents. These new meters will help our meter readers get accurate readings, while also providing data on a potential water leak within your residence.
Do I still need to make an appointment if I had my meter replaced in the last five years?
Yes! We are installing new communication modules on all meters. As such, we still need to enter properties with newer meters to perform the work.
My appointment is coming up but I am sick. What do I do?
Your safety will be top priority for MeterTek Utility Services Inc. If you or anyone in your household is sick, including but not limited to COVID-19 and the common cold, on the date of your install, we ask that you please call MeterTek Utility Services Inc. at 1-800-717-0974 and re-schedule.
I want my meter installed but I don’t live within the trial area.
