One of My customers had a badly cracked concrete cover. Went to water district and got a free replacement cover. pulled the old one and this is what I found. At least 4" of hardened dirt over meter and valve. It took using My hammer and flat bar to break it all up ! I doug down to bottom of meter . cleaned up glass ,recorded #s , Gave to gal. suggested the following. Call the Water Co. explaining the situation. Meter reader had to be guessing on #s for a long long time. Adjust bill and notify employee He /She Must record #s again, and You'll verify them also,for a while. Box is set in driveway concrete apron, no dirt around. Any input ?
