Water Meters

Estimated Bill

If you receive an estimated utility bill, your meter is not giving off proper readings and needs to be serviced as soon as possible. Please contact the Water Department to schedule an appointment at 586-725-7300. You have received an estimated bill if:

  • There is an 'E' next to your reading number on your bill.
  • Your bill has a sticker on it stating the bill is estimated with the Water Department contact number.
  • You received a letter in the mail stating your bill is estimated. 

High Bill

If you think your utility bill is unusually high, please contact the Water Department at 586-725-7300. If they need to come out and do a leak check or any other investigation, they will schedule an appointment with you. There is no additional charge for this appointment.

Sprinkler Meter

You have the option to get an additional outside meter. This meter is used for any outside watering and is not charged sewer. 

You can contact the Building Department at 586-725-2151 ext. 105 for additional information. Here is the sprinkler meter application and hook up guide. 

Water Meter

Your water meter is located in your basement or crawl space. You may need to shine a light directly on the meter's digital screen for the numbers to show up if you are attempting to get a read. If you have any questions about your water meter hook up, getting a meter change, or your actual water usage, please feel free to contact the Water Department at 586-725-7300.
