Water Meter Reading

Water meters are furnished and maintained by the Authority and remain the property of the PVWA.

All water meters are read monthly.

  • Water meters must be conveniently located and approved by the Authority.
  • Water meters must be positioned by the applicant so that they can be easily read and protected from damaging weather.
  • The applicant should notify the Authority of any defect or other issue preventing the proper operation of the meter, as soon as the applicant becomes aware of the problem.
  • No one other than the Authority and its employees will be allowed to remove or repair meters.

Water Meter Awareness

All water usage is measured using a meter. Do you know where your water meter is?

Fact: a leaky faucet that drips at the rate of one drip per second can waste more than 3,000 gallons of water in a year. Here are a few reasons why you should locate your meter and read it on a regular basis:

  • To check for leaks. A good way to tell if you have a leak is to read your water meter before going to bed and reread your meter in the morning before any water is used. If the reading changes, you have a leak.
  • You might be interested in how much water is being used on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.
  • Most meters are simple to read, like the odometer of a car.
  • Location: generally located in the basement of your house in the corner where the waterlines enter your house.
