Water Meters and Repairs

2022 Spring and Summer Service Appointments

During the spring and summer of 2022, the Township will be completing service appointments to inspect and repair water meters. The inspection and replacement time for a new water meter is approximately 30 to 90 minutes and will potentially require the water to be shut off and then turned back on. Someone from your household who is at least 18 years of age must be at home during the appointment. Advance notification and booking of the service appointments will be provided.

The water meter inspector will have a Township of South Glengarry photo ID card identifying themselves and will arrive in a vehicle with a Township of South Glengarry logo.

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.
