Meters are precision instruments that measure water usage in gallons. Built to exacting standards, meters are carefully tested for accuracy by the manufacturer prior to installation.
While the meters are owned, installed and maintained by the Water Department, you are responsible for protecting the meter from damage. If the meter is damaged by an overt act or neglect, meter replacement costs are the responsibility of the property owner.
The meter must remain accessible at all times for reading, inspection and removal or replacement.
