The crews will be wearing orange shirts and will be in trucks marked with “Meter Replacement Crew.” The crews will not need to enter residences to complete the replacement, which should take 15-30 minutes at each location.

Commercial meter customers will be notified of water shutoffs in advance. Anyone with special needs for water should notify the City of Breckenridge Water Department at 254-559-8287.

The Breckenridge City Commission approved the $1.3 million project at their regular May meeting. The replacement project is being paid for with money from the American Rescue Plan Act – Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds Program.

The new digital meters will automatically send data from the meter to the City for billing.
