Photo by Dodie Evans Cory Eoff, employee with the Gravette Water Department, holds a plumbing fitting between his teeth as he prepares a new electronically-read water meter at a customer s meter box. He removed the old mechanical meter, which he holds in his hands, and prepares to install the new device which transfers water consumption information directly to City Hall. This can help recognize almost instantly if a customer has a bad leak in the plumbing. Such information, relayed to the customer, can possibly save him many dollars on a water bill. About 150 of the more than 1,000 meters are in the process of being installed throughout the city. - Photo by Arkansas Online
