Major items of work: The City of Hillsboro has recently completed a water distribution improvement project including new service connections and meters on newly installed water mains. This project will consist of removing existing meters and installing new AMR meters, or new service connections on the balance of the services in town. It is estimated that approximately 1000 services will be involved. The existing mechanical meters will be replaced with Sensus iPERL or OMNI C2 radio read meters and pit transceivers. It is estimated that approximately 400 – 5/8” meters will need to be removed and replaced, 200 connections will need to have the existing meter cans, setters, meters, and lids removed, and a new 5/8” X 3/4” or 1” service connection installed; 340 – 1” meters will need to be removed and replaced, 25 – 1.5” meters will need to be removed and replaced, 24 – 2” meters will need to be removed and replaced, and 3 – 3” meters will need to be removed and replaced. Owner will provide in-field direction as to which locations receive meter replacements and which locations receive new service connections.

All new meters will need to have a pit transceiver installed. The existing meter lids will remain on the meters that are being removed and replaced. All materials removed will be City property and shall be delivered to the City water treatment plant. A meter work order shall be completed for each meter/service connection completed. All backfill shall be compacted so that no settling occurs.

All of the iron and steel products used in this project must be produced in the United States and certifications of such production must be provided to the owner prior to installation.
