Finding your meter

In Blue Lake Springs, your water meter is generally located near the curb or street in front of your home.  Meters in BLS tend to share property corners so check the front property corners first.  You should see your meter box and your neighbors.  Meters are typically found in a plastic or concrete box.  Carefully remove the smaller lid by using a tool such as a large screwdriver, and then pull the whole lid off the box.  If your meter is buried or not visible when you remove the lid you may need to uncover it.  There will be a wire attaching the meter to the box lid, follow the wire down and it will attach to the top of the meter.

Reading your meter

Water meters in the BLS measure volume in cubic feet. One cubic foot = 7.48 gallons and 100 cubic feet = 748 gallons.  Your water charges are based on 100 cubic feet (cuft) units.

BLSMWC water meters are all straight-reading meters, which resembles the odometer in a car.
