About Your Water Meter
Meters are the property of Mount Pleasant Waterworks (MPW). They measure how much water flows from MPW's public water system into a customer's private plumbing system.
Reading Your Meter
MPW reads your meter once every 28 - 31 days. It is important to make sure your meter is accessible by keeping it free of obstacles such as debris, plants, fences, etc.
Automated Meter Reading (AMR)
MPW's customers have meters equipped with automated meter reading (AMR) technology. AMR meters have a transmitter on top of the meter that transmits the meter's reading via radio signal.
Our meter readers have laptop computers that pick up the signal when they drive by. These meters can still be read manually by removing the lid of the meter box and reading the dial.
