STEP 1 Locate your water meter, generally found towards the front of a property, near the street, in the basement. The meter is typically around the area of your water heater inside your home.
STEP 2 Once you open the water meter, lift the protective cap on the meter. On the face of the meter, there is a large dial and a display of numbers.
STEP 3 Keep in mind that you might be checking your meter on a date different from the one used for billing. This could result in a difference in the amount you find, compared with the amount on which your bill is based. 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.
