Council's presentation of the new water meter Reading Enhancement Program has been pushed back.
Fort Saskatchewan's infrastructure management department was scheduled to request approval for the new plan at the Mar.27 meeting, but plans have changed.
The city is still waiting for a propagation study to be completed by Sensus.
”The study determines how many remote towers are required to pick up signals from water meters and where will they should be located in the community. The study will also provide information on how far water meter signals can be picked up, which is important to understand when planning for growth,” said the city's infrastructure management director, Richard Gagnon.
The cost of the program is also being studied.
Installing new water meters would provide an opportunity to read them remotely and in real time.
The presentation will now go on Apr.24.
