How to Find and Read My Water Meter
DO YOU HAVE A WATER LEAK?
Leaky pipes and drips when undetected waste thousands of gallons of water and result in higher monthly water bills. Dripping faucets and running toilets are pretty easy to detect. Underground leaks are invisible but can literally wash away the structural integrity of your home. Here is a guide to help you find and read your water meter to assist you in finding “hidden” water leaks.
Construction Hydrant Meters
Construction Hydrant Meters are available through the City of Prescott for construction projects that require potable water, prior to the release of a water meter for the construction site.
A construction hydrant meter may be supplied upon request as a temporary source of potable water where there is no reliable water source available for construction work or for permitted City events. The City of Prescott’s construction hydrant meters are now equipped with a reduced pressure back flow assembly and the City’s Water Protection division performs the back flow testing.
Construction Hydrant Meter application/ agreement is now online and downloadable.
Contact Water Operations for assistance on the application/agreement form and for fee information.
