Water/Sewer Bills

A complaint regarding water usage generates a check of the meter reading, a review of the customer’s property for plumbing leaks, removal of meter and testing for accuracy. Abatements are not granted unless test results indicate a problem with the meter. Meters are allowed to have a 2% accuracy range by Mass General Law. We generally find that meters read low with age and record less water than actually passes through them.

Water Service Renewals and Meter Valve Replacements

The customer is responsible for the cost of the replacement of the valve at the meter and the replacement of his water service from the main to the house. Service line replacement is rare and usually only occur where old galvanized iron pipes were originally used, aggressive soil conditions, and electrochemical corrosion.  Property owners are responsible for the replacement and repair of their service line after shut off at the property line known as the "curb stop".
