The Fairfield City Council Water & Sewer Utilities Committee
Will meet Monday, July 2, 2012 At 6:00 P.M. in the City Hall Council Chambers
Items to be discussed: Utility Connections, Review of Water Meter Options.
Various proposals (continue reading) have been discussed including meters:
* connected by optic fibre through the Lisco network
* which pulse RF only once per month as the “Sensus” brand water meters do in Vedic City.
* connected via the telephone network
The Chairman of the Water Utility Committee has been asked and will not give a guarantee that Fairfield will keep the Sensus meters pulsing only once per month and not switch in the future to the Smart Grid mode that this Sensus meter is already capable of, which pulses many times per hour. Also, this Sensus 510M has 20 times more power (RF) than the Neptune radio-read meters that the Water Dept. has been installing. This model of the Sensus is more advanced and powerful than one commonly in use in Vedic City.
The Fairfield Coalition For Safe Utility Meters feels that the fiber optics through the LISCO network is the safest option.
The public are welcome to attend this meeting. This is an important meeting since the NEXT GENERATION of RF meters is being discussed for Fairfield.
