Photo courtesy of John Golden The Mount Vernon Water Department employed four seasonal workers this summer to change aging water meters and replace meter transceiver units also known as MXUs. An MXU allows for the meter personnel to pick up meter readings while driving through the immediate area. From left are Breah Franko, Cameron Booth and Zach Hill. Franko documents the MXU information as Booth removes the meter pit lid to replace the MXU. Hill enters the information into a handheld device which will collect the readings. Not pictured is Chanity Igou who helped in the office entering the new MXU numbers into the correct account.
