Your individual taxes may increase at a greater or lesser rate, or even decrease, depending on the tax rate that is adopted and on the change in the taxable value of your property in relation to the change in taxable value of all other property.

Rankin Road West MUD partnered with Water WasteWater Management Services and Accurate Meter to bring smart water meters to our district to modernizing its operations and technology infrastructure to improve its customers’ experience. The new smart meters are a more accurate and intelligent tool for water conservation and will greatly improve our water system’s operational efficiency. Our goal is to reduce water loss due to leaks, improve visibility of water usage trends, and accelerate reporting and handling of problems.
Smart water meters will enable the automated transmission of customers’ water meter readings, providing them with accurate, near-real-time data on their water usage. Through a user-friendly portal, customers will have near-real-time water usage information at their fingertips and receive leak alerts, thereby reducing bills and saving money. This technology will help customers better manage water usage and protect against high bills.
Rankin Road West MUD will be sharing regular updates in District website to make sure residents are in the know about the important information of the smart meter portal.
Smart water Meter installation is schedule to begin August 9, 2023 all existing meter will be replaced within the next two months. Accurate Meter will leave door tags upon installation of new smart meters. The water to the property will need to be shut off for at least 30 minutes during the installation of the new smart water meters.
There is no cost to customers for the project and our communities’ drinking water will remain safe to drink throughout the project.
Installing smart water meter infrastructure provides water customers peace of mind and convenient ondemand access to timely consumption information, automated leak alerts, and powerful budgeting tools to help manage consumption and improve water stewardship. We look forward to the successful completion of this project and appreciate your cooperation throughout the process.
