Your new meter does not require any maintenance by the homeowner. As before, the City will take care of all maintenance. Please note that your new meter has transmitting technology which automatically sends usage information to our offices. Damage to the transmitting equipment will send an alert to the Water Utilities department prompting an inspection. Please take precaution when caring for your lawn near the lid mounted transmitter.
Chapter 32 Utilities Section 32-6, Section 32-7, and Section 32-13 outline the City ordinance regarding utility property. Residents should not technically access the City's meter box, and if there is an issue or if you need access, please contact 325-676-6000. Tampering with the new meters can cause interruption of service or fees for damage.
