Meter Reading & Billing
Similar to reading your electric meter, Black River Falls Utilities crew members collect usage data from your water meter through the AMI system or with a hand held collection device. Your sewer usage is calculated using your water usage data. Our data collection devices read your meter from a distance and store that information in a format that is then downloaded into our billing software to help produce your monthly billing statement. We do have some meters that require manual reads by Utility employees. Black River Falls Utilities is in the process of transitioning to AMI meter reading and when completely implemented, the utility employees will no longer walk to each and every meter to 'read the meter'.
In some cases or during certain times of year when we are not able to get close enough to your meter, our data collection devices are not able to communicate with your meter to deliver consumption data. In that event, we provide you with an estimated billing statement, based on your normal usage history for that time of year. Any difference between the amount actually used and the estimated amount billed is corrected automatically when the next regular meter reading is obtained. Ultimately, you pay only for the amount of water actually used.
