Installation

Meters on private property are to be installed by the consumer and will be subject to inspection prior to the water service being turned on. The cost of installing any meter on an existing water service shall be borne by the City of Maple Ridge. All meters placed on existing water services will be installed by the Waterworks section.

Reading Concerns
When any consumer whose water service is metered makes a complaint that the water service account is excessive, the Waterworks section will have the meter re-read upon written request.
