Water Billing Made Easier—New Sensus FlexNet Tower Nears Completion

SENSUS DIAGRAMIn our ongoing effort to improve efficiencies in governance and the cost-effective delivery of services to our residents, the Village of Olympia Fields is pleased to report that the new Sensus FlexNet Tower is close to completion. The tower, which was approved by the Village’s Board of Trustees in January 2022, will improve the Village’s water meter reading capabilities. Specifically, the tower will increase accuracy and timeliness in billing and provide residents with a more user-friendly understanding of their water usage patterns. Also with the new tower, the Village will be able to transition to a monthly billing cycle, which will enable residents to identify problems sooner, before they result in costly water bills.

The system’s two-way, long-range radio network will be able to read water usage data and provide real-time usage information from meters and other sensors located throughout the Village. This will be especially useful in helping the Village’s Public Works Department immediately identify high water use issues related to leaks and equipment failure, system outages and other abnormalities that can drive up water costs. 

 

Water Meter Conversion Program

The Village’s Department of Public Works is in the final phase of its Water Meter Replacement Program. Through this program, public works representatives will replace old water meters with new state-of-the art Smart Meters at no cost to residents. With the installation of the upgraded Smart Meters, water meter readings will be conducted remotely via the Sensus FlexNet Tower network, which means public works personnel will no longer need to access your property to do these reads. 

 We are pleased to report that the majority of Village residences have completed the meter conversion process. If you are one of the 29 residences that have yet to convert to a Smart Meter, please contact the Public Works Department at 708-503-8200 immediately to set up an appointment. Time is of the essence!
