Re: Timeline for Installation of Smart Water Meters by Harvey Dye Plumbing
August 16, 2019 – Harvey Dye Plumbing brings equipment to Jerome and parks it off Reed Avenue by Jerome Park.
August 19, 2019 – Installation of Smart water meters begins. Please call the Village garage if you have questions 546-9647.
Most meter installations will only require the resident’s water to be off for a few minutes. If a longer time is needed for a particular meter the installation will be scheduled at a later date.
Installation is scheduled to run through September 6, 2019. This date may be extended due to weather or any unforeseen issues that would arise.
There is going to be a lot of activity in the Village of Jerome over the next few weeks. The reconstruction of West Grand Court and the installation of smart meters is going to make for some construction congestion in the Village. We appreciate your patience during this time. If any JULIE markings or flags are present on your property please do not disturb them. This makes everyone’s job a lot easier.
Any questions about installation procedures or why your property may have JULIE markings or Flags on it please call the Village garage at 546-9647.
