Meter Pit Damages: Who is responsible?

Meter Pit Damages: Who is responsible?

Nov 28, 2018 788 Views FacebookTwitterLinkedInGoogle Plus

During the course of the year, a few customers will have a meter pit replaced due to damage caused by negligence. The most common is cattle pushing the meter pit lid off and stepping in the meter pit, bending the riser. 

RWD #3 will bill the customer for the damage as outlined on page 21 of the RWD BYLAWS and R&R......"Consumer's Responsibility The Consumer shall be responsible for any damage to service equipment installed by the District for his service, on account of any cause other than normal wear and tear."

The RWD BYLAWS and R&R are available here /Portals/russell3/documents/CustomerService/BY-LAWS.pdf again refer to page 21

The best solution to prevent meter pit damage and receiving a bill from the RWD for the repairs is to erect a simple barricade around the meter pit. Keep in the mind that the barricade must allow easy access to the meter pit for customer readings and audit readings from RWD personnel.
