As you try different efficiency and conservation methods wouldn't
it be good to know your meter reading more frequently than once
a month when your bill arrives? In this video, LP&L will show
you how to read your meter to determine if your efforts are paying
off and give you the ability to check your usage before you have
to take time to call or visit LP&L. Please never touch an electric
meter and never stick your hand in a water meter box for your safety.

After you view the video and know more about
reading your meter, try and read your meter the
day you get your bill. Your meter was read
by LP&L within the past couple of days, so your
reading should be really close to the reading on
your bill. If your unsure where to look on
your bill, look for Service Totals on page two of
your bill and then look for Water Consumption.
Remember your reading thousands of gallons, so unless
you have a leak, been using a water sprinkler system
a lot or filled up a swimming pool your reading
should be really close to the Water Consumption
reading on your bill. Some water meters have separate
small dial on the meter. If your meter has
this dial, it is called a leak detector and it can
benefit you, if you think you have a leak.
To check, just turn off all the water and then go
back to the meter and see if the leak detector dial
is rotating. If the leak detector is
rotating, you may have a water
leak, so do some investigating.
