Royalwood Mobile Home Park - Lynnwood, WA

 

Project Goals

Royalwood Mobile Estates in Lynnwood, WA was built in the early 60’s and is an upscale community for 55 and older residents. The owners were going concerned about ever rising water and sewer costs and particularly leaking plumbing throughout the property. Installing a new water submetering system would allow the park management to recover the water and sewer fees from each resident based on actual usage. The metering system would also provide the maintenance staff at the property the data and visibility to find and fix leaks.
