Water readings

Residents in the Loulé municipality will now be able to call a 24 hour free phone number to report water metre readings.

Customers can now call 800 500 122 to submit their reading via this new service which has been created to make reading meters an easier process, especially for people with disabilities or speech problems as the service uses touchtone keys to record values.

Part of the service will also be available in English.

A spokesman from Loulé Câmara said: This initiative is part of a modernisation process aimed at reducing metre reading errors and improving the general level of the service.
