Does the City replace meters on a schedule?

The City changes out residential water meters with new meters on a ten- to fifteen-year cycle. This is because meters run slow as they age; to assure accuracy of billings we have to change them out. When meters age, they typically run slow or stop running completely. If the City did not regularly replace the meters, we would need to test all residential meters as they age to ensure they were operating within standards.
