    Most electric meters are read from the outside. However, the water meter is usually located inside the residence. Your water meter is typically read by remote from outside your home. On occasion, we may need to gain access to your water meter if there is a problem with the remote. We will contact you to schedule an appointment to gain access to the inside meter if such a need arises.
