This page explains how to get a final water reading before closing on a home. If you have any questions please call us at the DPW office at 508-378-1620.
First you will need to locate the water meter. It will be in the basement or lowest level of your home. The new ones look like this:
With the cover open, shine a bright flashlight on the dark panel for 15-20 seconds. The numbers should appear and you can then take a picture of them.
Email that picture with your name, address of the home where the final is being done and the name of the new owner to . We will process the Final read usually that same day.
If yours does not look like this then we need to change the meter to a new one and you should call the office to make an appointment.
You will need a flashlight to get the reading. Open the black cover on the meter (see pic)
