The City of Portage la Prairie has recently replaced your water meter with new “Smart Meter technology. As one of its functions, the Smart Meter has the ability to detect potential water leaks based on the frequency of water flows through the system. The Smart Meter will display an LED indicator when it has detected a possible leak. It is important that you familiarize yourself with the new water meter and the local of the leak indicator light. You are encouraged to monitor your Smart Meter to check for an indication of a possible water leak in your household. The Smart Meter technology is merely an aid to detection and not a soltion for the prevention of water leaks. If you are concerned about leaks you should consult with your plumbing contractor.
