Meters only register water than actually flows through the meter. If the meter is failing due to age – it will slow down - meaning that it will not be registering all the gallons that have flowed through it. Your water bills generally will be lower and lower if you have a failing meter. If you see this trend - please contact someone in the Business Office immediately to have your meter checked. District personnel will need to enter your home to read your inside meter and compare the value with your outside meter.
