Public Open House: Water Meter Installations Phase One

Kamloops, B.C. - Beginning in late June, 2011 the City of Kamloops is moving forward with the installation of water meters. Neptune Technology Group Canada Ltd. has been contracted by the City to supply and conduct the water meter installations.
