Columbia Gas implementing new meter-reading devices

Posted by Lisa Strawbridge - email

TOLEDO (WTOL) - Changes are coming soon for Columbia Gas customers. Starting next week, old meter-reading devices will be replaced with automated devices.

The project begins in Holland and will be statewide by 2011. The new meters allow for monthly and more accurate readings.

"There are 35 million used across the nation, and they are 99 percent accurate. So we are confident it will be an absolute upgrade for consumers," said Chris Kozak with Columbia Gas.

You should receive a postcard over the next few weeks notifying you about the switch.
