City of Lead Replaces Outdated Water Meters

City officials in Lead have placed old water meters on display to help explain to city residents exactly why the meters were in need of replacing, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The outdated meters have calcified which has resulted in significant interference in conducting accurate water readings.

The old meters are currently in the process of being replaced. The replacement project, which will install approximately 1,500 new meters across the city, is expected to be completed sometime in 2018.
