Water Meter Info                                                  03/29/14
You still have access to your water meter but be careful not to disconnect the wires to the round disk that transmits your billing data!  Your water key, if you have one, still works to cut off the water in the event of a leak.  Sometimes the valve "sleeve" twists and the water key won't quite fit.  If that's the case and you have a water leak, call Public Works for assistance, 228.435.6271.
