Protecting Water Meters from Freezing!


The City has been experiencing a high call of frozen pipes and a few possible water meters.  According to City Code, property owners are responsible for keeping the meter insulated and from freezing.  With the forecast to see warming and more freezing potential for breaks increases. The simplest way is to get a trash bag and place waded up newspaper in the bag.  Place the bag evenly in the meter box, over the meter, ensuring no water can stand on top of the bag.  Insulation also works. The City does offers a winterization package service fee, currently at $45.00 per year.  Please contact the City if you are interested.
