Meter Reading

STEP 1   Locate your meter box, generally found towards the front of a property, near the road on either side of the driveway or on the property corners. It is housed in a plastic box usually with a blue marking on the pavement. Remove the lid. 

STEP 2   On the face of the meter, there is a large dial and a display of numbers. Read the number display from left to right. This is your meter reading. Charges for the amount of water consumed are measured in hundred gallons used during a billing period. Compare that reading to what your bill states as your current or present reading.

STEP 3   Keep in mind that you are checking your meter on a date different from the one used for billing. This will result in a difference in the amount you find, compared with the amount on which your bill states. However, if your reading is considerably higher than what is on your bill, check for a leak or try to determine the source of large water use. If your reading is significantly lower than the reading on your bill, please contact us and let us assist you in determining the problem.
