What you can expect: Utilities Management Services (UMS) employee, Augusta Twp utility service contractor, will need to enter the basement and inspect the meter. They will be taking pictures of the water meter. They will require access to the area where the water meter is located. Expected duration no more than 10 minutes assuming they can freely access the meter and take pictures. If you have a domestic and irrigation meter UMS employee will need to take pictures of both meters.

Homeowners are given 48 hours to schedule an appointment. Appointments need to be scheduled within a 7-day window. Appointments are between Monday thru Friday 9-5. There is no cost to the resident for this meter inspection. Failure to schedule an appointment may lead to a service shut off.
