In 2013 the Town Board authorized the purchase of new meters for the Glasco Water District. The intent is to bring the district in compliance with new USEPA standards regarding lead content in water systems. The existing meters have a lead content that exceeds the 2014 EPA standards. Therefore, the meters must be taken out of service if they fail or require repair. The Town Board made a proactive decision to upgrade to lead-free meters utilizing available grant money to help defray the cost of replacement.
