Colfax to test new water meters

City testing 50 new meters before deciding


September 30, 2021

COLFAX — Colfax is replacing the 1,205 meters used to track water use and the replacements might be able to detect leaking water mains.

Colfax Public Works is in the planning phase to install 50 new water meters in the Hamilton Park area to test their capabilities. The meters not only record water used but use acoustics to detect leaking water mains and can transmit data to make reading the meters more efficient.

“We’re going to see if they’re going to work for us,” said Colfax Public Works Director Matt Hammer. “It’s a pretty new technology. It’s pretty interesting.”
