LA CROSSE, WI (WKBT) - 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," Utilities Manager Mark Johnson said.
Inspectors ask that you clear out a pathway 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.24251652
