Meter Reading

Leflore RWD 2 reads meters starting around the 15th of every month. We do not estimate any of our meter readings. We have a new meter system that uses AMR technology and have been slowly changing out the old meters to the new Hersey meters that use the AMR technology that send the reading to a drive by system in our trucks. If you notice that your meter box is not being opened its because we no longer need to. If you have any questions feel free to call our office and we will try to answer any quetions you have.

STEP 1   Locate your meter box, generally found towards the front of a property, near the street. The box is typically in a direct line with the main outside faucet. It is housed in a concrete, Plastic or metal box usually marked "water". Remove the lid by using a tool such as a large screwdriver or meter lid key.Insert the tool into one of the holes and pry the lid off.

STEP 2   Once you open the meter box lid, lift the protective cap on the meter. On the face of the meter, there is a large dial and a display of numbers. For the residential meter, each rotation of the dial measures 10 gallons. Read the number display from left to right. Be sure to include the stationary zero. This is your meter reading. Meters measure water in gallons.Compare that reading to what your bill states as your current or present reading.

STEP 3   Keep in mind that you might be checking your meter on a date different from the one used for billing. This could result in a difference in the amount you find, compared with the amount on which your bill is based. However, if your reading is considerably higher than what is on your bill, check for a leak or try to determine the source of large water use. If your reading is significantly lower than the reading on your bill, please contact us and let us assist you in determining the problem.
