Meter Reading

STEP 1   Locate your meter box, generally found towards the front of a property, near the street. The box is typically in a direct line with the main outside faucet.  Remove the lid by using a tool such as a large screwdriver. Insert the tool into one of the holes and pry the lid off.

STEP 2   Once you open the meter box lid, on the face of the meter, there is a digital display of numbers. Read the number display from left to right. The two smaller digits on the far right are tenths of a gallon and those numbers are not included in your reading.  Meters measure water in gallons.
