Dear Village of Pecatonica Resident:

The Village of Pecatonica has recently purchased new meters and electronic reading devices. Please let me point out that every household or business will not receive a new meter but, all will receive new electronic reading devices. The installation will be performed by Anything Plumbing, Duane Melancen along with an employee of the Village of Pecatonica Public Works Department, they will need to enter every household and someone over the age of 18 will need to be present.

The hours for installation are Monday –Thursday  8:00 a.m. -5:30 p.m. and Saturdays 8:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m. If you would like to schedule an appointment please call Village Hall at 815.239.2310. We will begin installation this week. Installation should take about one hour and your water will need to be shut off during this time. In most cases, the work can be done with minimal disruption to you and your family.

Your meter must be easily accessible for the installer to replace and all items anywhere near the meter must be removed. The new electronic reading device will allow the Village to receive daily reads on your water usage which in turn will alert us to water leaks and we will then contact the property owner.

* All households and businesses will need to have a new electronic reading device  installed.
* Only some households will need to have the meter replaced.
* Every household and/or business will need to be entered and someone over the age of 18 will need to be present.
* Call Village Hall to schedule an appointment.
* Installation should not take more than one hour and the water will be turned off during this installation also be sure the area around the meter is easily accessible.
* The Village of Pecatonica Police Department will be providing all of the installers involved with this project a Village issued identification card. Be sure to ask for it.
* The new reading device will allow the Village to receive daily read and will alert us to water leaks at which time we will contact the property owner.

If you have any question or concerns, please call Village Hall at 815.239.2310.
Thank you.
