It is the account holder's responsibility to provide continual access to the water meter. If a meter reader encounters an obstruction to the meter, a 24-hour notice will be posted to the account holder's door (or vehicle if it is the obstruction) requesting that the obstruction be removed. If the obstruction is not removed within 24 hours, the matter will be turned over to the Codes Department
as an ordinance violation and possible tow.
The property owner is responsible for maintaining the service line from the meter to the building / home as well as all plumbing within the building / home.
