Town officials warn don’t mow over water meter lids or other attached parts

ORLEANS – The Orleans Water Department reminds residents to please use care when mowing their yard and not to run over and potentially damage their water meter lid or other attached parts. 

The town’s 900 some water meters and radio units for the meter itself are all electronic and 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.
