Village Begins Water Meter Replacement Project - Northbrook residents and businesses can expect to receive information about the upcoming replacement of water meters with new exterior meters. According to the Village website, the new devices will allow for remote real-time reading of meters by staff and water users, which will help identify leaks and enable users to manage water more efficiently. The Village and its partner Veregy LLC are currently in the audit stage of the replacement project; installation of the new meters is projected to begin in the fall of 2024.  Read more on the Village website.
