By
Real Estate Agent with Massachusetts Buyers Broker Agency, LLC

About 21,000 new meters and 24,000 network transmitters will be installed in homes and businesses as part of the city of Quincy's plan to more accurately track water usage and calculate bills.

Here is the old:

And here is the new:

All home meters that are more than 5 years old will be re-placed.  The new meters will be an asset to homeowners, as now the automated meters will provide real-time usage data as opposed to estimates.  City workers will come out to homes and will be wearing identification badges and traveling in marked vehicles. 

Mayor Thomas Koch said, "When we are finished, residents can expect fair and accurate billing without the fluctuations caused by estimates."

That sounds like a great thing to happen. It always seems to be a big mystery when the water bill arrives!!
