Here is your Eye on Water Information - 8/30/2016

Posted on September 13, 2017 at 3:42 PM by Hunter Harris

Southlake Water Utilities is working with Badger Meter to upgrade more than 10,000 meters in Southlake this summer. In fact, you may have received your Smart Technology already! The technology is actually a device attached to your standard brass meter that communicates with a secure website via cell towers. 

One of the benefits of the program is the ability to monitor your water use in real time, which can help you identify anomalies with your water use and make more informed decisions about your usage. You can also set alerts for possible leaks.

The graph below is just one example of what you'll be able to see.

After your system is tested, quality-checked, and ready, you will receive a notice in the mail with information about accessing your account online or on your smart phone. More information for you means less surprises when your monthly bill arrives! 
For questions, please contact Southlake Water Utilities Customer Service at

Weekly Watering Advice
This week's recommendation once again is for you to not water at all. Due to the amount of rainfall Southlake has received over the past week, your lawn has received plenty of water to keep it healthy. For more information on this, visit Water Is Awesome.
