Water meters can malfunction; we found that their tendency is to slow down rather than speed up. With advance notice, a test can be scheduled. If the meter tests correctly, you will be charged a $50 testing fee for a residential meter. Commercial accounts are done on contract at cost. If the meter tests incorrectly, you will not be charged the testing fee.
