Yes. The Public Service Commission (PSC) requires the Brown Deer Water Utility to change out meters on a 20-year replacement schedule per PSC 185.76(6). This gives the Utility legal authority to access and change out the meter. Failure to allow the Utility to access and replace the meter can result in disconnection.
There are several ways to schedule the meter change appointment. You may call our office at 414-371-3081 during normal business hours. If you reach the answering machine after hours you can leave a message with your name and telephone number where you can be reached during the day. Appointments can also be made online.
A typical meter replacement takes less than 30 minutes to complete.
Appointments are scheduled between 7:30 am to 2:30 pm Monday through Friday.
Your meter will be replaced at no cost to you.
The location of each water meter varies but is usually located in the basement of the home. Typically, it will be along the outside wall closet to the street where the water main is located. In side by sides, water meters may be in each basement, or both water meters may be located in a single unit.
Brown Deer Water Utility employees will complete all meter replacements. Brown Deer Water Utility employees carry photo IDs with name, the Brown Deer Water Utility logo, contact information, and position. Please ask for identification before letting any employee into your residence.
