Water Meter Replacement Project

Water Meter

The Village of Oak Brook recently approved the replacement all water meters throughout the Village. The new water meters and transceivers will allow the Village to provide better customer service, greater data accuracy, and will provide reduced operational costs of our water system.

The project plan includes replacing meters in six distinct zones beginning with Zone 1 which includes the area west of Meyers Rd and north of Oak Brook Rd.  When the Zone 1 installations are near completion the contractor will begin installations in Zone 2. We expect the process to continue through Zone 6 which will take several months.

IMPORTANT: Please wait until you receive a written letter from United Meters, Inc. before calling to schedule an appointment to replace your meter.

The following information is important to understand in advance of our visit to your home or business:

  • This is a mandatory water meter replacement project. The Village and United Meters, Inc. will work to make this as convenient as possible for all residents and businesses.
  • The replacement of most water meters will require access to your residence or business, as nearly all of them are located inside.
  • You will receive a mailed notification from United Meters, Inc. prior to installers arriving in your neighborhood. This notification will provide instructions on how to set up an appointment for your water meter to be replaced.
  • An adult age 18 or older must be present at all appointments, which will take approximately 30 to 60 minutes.
  • The automated water meters will transmit water usage data wirelessly to the Village, but they present no health or data security risks.

We appreciate your cooperation in making this project a success.

To schedule the meter replacement in your home, please contact United Meters, Inc. at (815) 941-1061.
