For Your Information


Tampering with Water Meters

Water meters are the property of the City. Only the City may install, remove, disconnect or re-connect a meter. Meters are maintained or replaced by the City. However, property owners are responsible for safeguarding water meters. All property owners are suppose to have a shut off valve on their property in case of leaks and need to turn the water off.

It is illegal for any unauthorized person to alter, tamper with, relocate, willfully damage, or bypass a water meter. It is illegal for any unauthorized person to reconnect a water meter after City of Carmine personnel have disconnected it.

Tampering is also subject to criminal charges. Any person violating these provisions may be found guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor. Whomever if found guilty in civil action of violating these provisions shall be liable to the City of Carmine in triple the amount of losses and damages sustained or $500, whichever is greater.

The fact that water is turned on to any premises by an occupant thereof without the approval of City of Carmine personnel shall not relieve such premises of liability for the unauthorized use of water and damage to city property.
