Installation of Pressurized Irrigation Meters

Starting Sept. 28th Salem City will have our water crew starting the install of PI Meters on each PI service in town. This install will happen starting now and over the next year.  You will notice two to four City employees working in your PI box.  They will leave your box upgraded with a meter and landscape repairs.  Most upgrades take one to two business days from start to finish. 

This project will take approximately one year to complete.  After the installation is complete the City will begin developing a rate structure and establish an estimated date to start billing for usage.  The City will notify customers when they can expect to see the new PI rate structure on their utility bill.
