Metering Project Update
Employees have completed installation of the new electric meters. Now it’s time to move on to water meters. You will be contacted by Borough staff and asked to schedule a time to have your water meter replaced. We expect that it will take less than 30 minutes to replace your old meter with the new one. Please make sure that you have your meter ready to access when scheduled so we can be as efficient as possible.
Please understand that we will need to enter your home to replace your water meter, so we prefer to do so at a time that you are also home. That’s why we will be scheduling this work in advance. Borough Employees will be wearing an employee ID and clothing and present it to you upon request.
Frozen Pipes and Water Meters
Did you know that once the Borough installs the water meter, you, as the property owner are responsible for proper maintenance, just like you are responsible for all the other plumbing in your home? So take a little time to check out the area that the meter is located in, is it well insulated? Is it in a heated area? Paying attention to these details can help save you the cost and inconvenience of broken pipes and water meters.
Help Us See The Unseen
The Borough, like many other utility providers, experiences leaks or problems with our collection and distribution systems. While our routine monitoring and maintenance often helps us find problem areas, we’re always looking for more to make our systems as tight and efficient as possible. Please help us by calling the office if you see anything unusual when you are out and about. Is there a puddle that doesn’t go away and was never there before? Do you hear running water somewhere? Is your drain emptying slower than usual?
Please help us see the unseen by calling us if you notice anything unusual when you’re out enjoying the spring weather. Thanks, we appreciate your help! 570-966-1013
