Change in Name or Ownership of Water/Sewer Account
The water meter must be inspected and read from inside the residence anytime there is a request to change the name on the property's water/sewer account. At no time will there be a change in owners or tenants on an account without someone from the Department of Public Works (DPW) water department getting inside the residence to inspect and read the meter.
The DPW will do a turn off of a water service from the outside of residence without someone being home. Before the water in turned back on, the DPW must gain entry to the residence to inspect and read the inside meter.
