CITY OF MONTROSE AWARDS BID FOR METER REPLACEMENT PROJECT TO SLC METER
Wade Trim engineering sent a notice of award to SLC Meter, llc to furnsih and install Badger E-series meters and the Orion SE fixed network reading system. SLC will provide everything needed to facilitate a turn-key system. The project is expected to begin in mid August and be completed by October 31, 2014. Although Neptune meters were offered on a lower bid, the specifications called for superior solid state water meters with no moving parts. SLC beat out Sensus iPerl meters and the Flexnet reading system which did meet specifications. The SLC bid was 30% lower, saving the City considerable cost. The project is funded by a loan provided by the U.S. Department of Rural Development.
