City of Greeley’s Advanced Water Meter Replacement Project Ramps Back Up

The City of Greeley is resuming the advanced water meter installation project this Fall which will replace old residential and commercial water meters that have reached the end of their life cycle with current industrial standard water meters.

The City of Greeley received an additional $2 million grant from the Bureau of Reclamation to complete the project, and Greeley officials plan to replace about 2,525 water meters before the end of the year. The project will continue through 2026, replacing the remaining 11,357 water meters.

Customers can check the status of their water meter replacement by finding their address on the interactive meter replacement schedule map.

City officials contracted a third-party company called Utility Metering Solutions (UMS) to complete the work. City of Greeley staff will supervise UMS employees doing the work – these crews will have ID badges indicating their name and employment with UMS. They will wear vests or jackets with “UMS” on the back and will travel in vehicles with large “UMS” magnets on the side.

All water customers will receive notification from the City and UMS about their meter installation prior to the work being performed. They will also receive information about the meters, the installation process, and how they can use the WaterSmart portal to manage their water use.

As a reminder, your advanced water meters are paired with the WaterSmart portal, which allows you to make more water-smart choices. The WaterSmart tool can:

  • Track water use within 24 hours of use
  • Learn easy ways to save water indoors and outdoors
  • Catch water leaks early, before they become costly
  • Set leak alarms and create personalized high-use alerts

Don’t forget to register for your free WaterSmart’s portal today. WaterSmart is available in English and Spanish.
