VILLAGE WATER METERS TO BE UPGRADED - The Village of Burr Ridge has recently begun efforts to upgrade all residential water meters in the system. Consumers with Badger water meters will have them replaced with the more accurate and reliable water meters at no cost to them. Residents whose water meters need replacing will be contacted by Public Works to arrange a time that this can be done. For more information on the water meter upgrades, click here. In some cases, there may be a difference between your inside water meter readings and the outside reading. This is called a "discrepancy". For a full explanation of why this occurs, and what it means, click here.
