Request for Water Meter Reading

The Town manages approximately 1,100 water accounts. Water meter reading information is obtained from remote sensors or radio frequency (RF) transmitters that are located on the inside of each home, business and facility within municipal boundaries. This information is transmitted through our RF network and downloaded into Trenton’s water billing system and used to produce bills quarterly (January, April, July and October).

If a water meter reading is requested outside of the regularly scheduled billing period, an administration fee of $20.00 is applied to provide information regarding the account. Cheques should be made payable to the Town of Trenton.
