The Philadelphia Water Department is installing new meter reading devices in every home in the city.

This upgrade is required and there is no charge for installation.

The work will be done by our contractors, Contract Callers, Inc. (CCI), and U.S. Facilities (USF). Another contractor, Black IPO, will be performing quality assurance tests after some installations. Contractors will have marked cars and photo identification.

Your health and safety are our priority. Our teams follow all state and local requirements, including protective equipment, sanitizing procedures, and social distancing.

Benefits for you:

  • You’ll be able to see your daily usage online, without calling or waiting for a monthly bill.
  • You can sign up for leak or usage alerts before they result in a high water bill.

About the Installation

The work will be done by contractors for PWD: Contract Callers, Inc. (CCI) and U.S. Facilities (USF). Another contractor, Black IPO, will be performing quality assurance tests after some installations.

Contractors will be wearing identification showing they are approved contractors for PWD.
