(ORLEANS) - The Orleans Water Department is reminding residents to use care when mowing their yards in not to run over and potentially damage their water meter lid or other attached parts.
The town's nearly 900 water meters and radio units (for the meter itself) are all electronic now and are quite costly.
A number of MXUs have been damaged in recent weeks by lawnmowers and residents may be held responsible for any damaged parts.
Caution should be used whenever mowing as not to hit or run over the top of the water meter lid.
Questions may be addressed to Orleans Town Offices Monday through Friday during regular business hours.
