  • A leak is considered a meter that has a flow of one gallon or more every hour in a 24-hr period
  • We continue to receive calls from customers regarding leaks, or pressure losses, all calls are forwarded to the contractor and M&I supervisor
    • SID is replacing leaking corp stops weekly as many 3-4/day
  • Discrepancies have been found with meter quantities and quantity of each size. This discrepancy will likely require a change order; however, the specific dollar amount and quantity may not be known until after the project is completed. At the moment, approximately 161 additional meters may be required.
  • Progress Payment 4 has been received and will be routed for approval.

Upcoming:
