Bellevue Utilities is replacing outdated, manually-read water meters with new, wireless-read technology. Now through 2022, Bellevue Utilities will be updating existing water meters with Smart Water Meters at businesses and homes. The project will not result in any rate increases or surcharges. In fact, it might even help you reduce your water consumption and save money.

Why is Bellevue Utilities installing Smart Water Meters?
The current manual meter reading program faces the following challenges:
- The existing meter reading system does not allow for timely detection—or notification—of water leaks.
- Customers currently only have access to their water usage information once every two months.
- Almost half of the existing meters are at, or approaching the end of, their useful life and will need to be replaced.
Please see the project schedule page to learn more about when your meter will be replaced and to find out more about what to expect during installation.
