Tips

  • Place the phone number for the Water District in a place that is convenient for you to find.
  • Know the location of the main shut off valve for the water inside your home/business.
  • Do not attempt to thaw a meter that is frozen. Contact the Water District and we will respond to diagnose and correct the problem at the meter.
  • Have a backup supply of water for use during emergencies.
  • Leave a faucet dripping during extreme cold weather.
  • Ensure your meter lid is flush with the ring and flush with the ground.  This will prevent cold air from entering the meter pit and freezing the meter.  Contact the Water District to have your meter lid checked for a proper fit.
