Water Meters and Repairs

How Water Meters Work

Water meters track household water usage and ensure customers are billed accurately. Every household, business and facility located within municipal boundaries and connected to the water distribution system is equipped with a water meter. Water meters are the property of the Township of South Glengarry and are maintained by the Township. (By-law #49-16).

Water Meter Maintenance

The Township owns water meters for homes on municipal water services and maintains the water meter at no cost providing you take precautions not to damage it. It is illegal to tamper with a water meter and residents cannot change water meters themselves.

Residents will be notified by mail when their meter is malfunctioning, and a service appointment is required. Residents may also receive a letter requesting occupancy confirmation should their meter continuously record low or no consumption.
