VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: Ultrasonic Meter Pilot

There are thousands of Chicago residents who are on the waiting list to receive a

water meter and start saving money on their water bills. The installation of meters was halted when a study indicated that in some residences saw a rise in lead levels after installation of a meter. The Department of Water Management (DWM) is conducting a study to determine whether using a different meter type, known as an ultrasonic meter, has an impact on residential lead levels.

DWM needs approximately one hundred more volunteers to complete this important study. Eligible locations need to be regularly occupied, single family homes that have been on the MeterSave waitlist. Not only will residents save money on their water bills, they could earn up to $100 in gift cards for participating. To volunteer, email or call 312-744-8196.
