Your water meter can seem intimidating at first, but learning to read it can save you time and money in the event of a leak.
The Town of Burgaw uses analog water meters along with mobile endpoints attached to each meter in its automatic reading infrastructure (AMI), which makes collecting water usage data easy and effective. The system can show water usage down to the hour making it easy to save money and water by analyzing potential leaks and high usage times.
What You'll Need:
- A long handled screwdriver
- A small shovel if the grass has grown around or over the meter box
- Pen/paper or a phone to record the reading
You will need to use the long handled screw driver to pop the meter cover off your meter. Please use caution when taking the cover off, your meter is placed underground and makes a good home for small critters including insects, lizard and snakes!
