Water Meter Found Hidden in the GroundLocate Your Water Meter

Most water meters are located in your front yard and are covered by a metal circular disc. Remove the disc and you will find your water meter.

If You've Found You Have a Leak

If you've found you have a leak, your next step is to locate the source of the possible leak and have it repaired. Some customers hire a professional, some are able to do this themselves and some ask a neighbor, relative, or handyman to help. You can submit repair documentation and apply for a leak adjustment to your bill.
