Inspectors from the city of the la Crosse might be
stopping by your home this winter, to replace your water meter.
The La Crosse Water Utility is replacing old
water meters across the city, with the hopes
of installing *new* meters at about 800 homes this year.
If you're next, you'll be notified
by a letter from the city.
The process is part of a state-mandated
program that includes inspections of water systems.
The goal is to help eliminate
the possibility of public water contamination.
"There are other things inside the house, things more traditionally related
to water softeners or in some cases boilers, but those are
the types of things that our inspector would be looking for."
Inspectors ask that you clear out a
path-way to your meter before the inspection begins.
There is no fee for those inspections, but
if a problem is found with your water
system, you're expected to make the corrections yourself.
