Dear City of Middletown Water Customer,
The City of Middletown has retained Energy Systems Group (ESG), and indirectly Professional Meters, Inc, (PMI) to install new Automatic Reading water meters at every water service location. The vast majority of meters have already been replaced by PMI since the beginning of their work in April of 2017. PMI will be ceasing their meter replacement efforts by end of October 2017.
PMI indicates that there is a number of locations which have not been cooperative in scheduling appointments to have their meter replaced, even after 4 notice attempts made by PMI.
PLEASE NOTE: Any remaining meter locations that have NOT been scheduled and replaced by the time that PMI ceases meter installations for the City of Middletown, will incur a $200.00 SURCHARGE FEE (added to their regularly scheduled water bill) for each subsequent billing period, and is subject to WATER SERVICE TERMINATION.
Furthermore, please also note the following responsibilities of the owner:
Residential development in the City of Middletown used to suffer flooding whenever stormwater topped off Co Rt 78.
Conventional engineering solutions such as Stormwater Detention Ponds or larger culverts were not feasible or appropriate solutions.
Innovative thinking in Middletown, which included construction of flood diversion wall continues to save the residential development from the devastation of flooding.
Photos below were taken during the 6/19/2017 flash flood by Commissioner Tawil.
