In an effort to forward the efficiencies in reading water meters, the Shelby Township Department of Public Works has initiated a township wide meter reading device change-out program. This process will require the replacement of the water meter reading device on the outside of your home or business.

To minimize the duration of the change-out program and any potential inconvenience to the residents, Shelby Township has partnered with Ferguson Waterworks and Utility Metering Solutions to provide the necessary material and labor for the completion of this program. Both of these partners have extensive experience in meter reading device change-outs.


The Shelby Township Department of Public Works is dedicated to maintaining a safe, potable water supply for domestic use and fire suppression while providing a quality of service above the expectations of our customers. In doing so, our crew of trained individuals maintain over 325 miles of water mains and 175 miles of sanitary sewer mains. Over 26,000 households are billed on a quarterly basis. 

In addition to keeping the water flowing in the township, the DPW also works with DTE Energy to maintain street lights throughout the township. The DPW also works with Green For Life Environmental Services and the township's Solid Waste and Recycling Committee to oversee the collection of solid waste for all of the township's single-family residences.
