Meter Test Request
If Jefferson Utilities, Inc or a property owner suspects that a meter is registering improperly, the meter, which is the property of Jefferson Utilities, Inc, will be removed by Jefferson Utilities and tested at the City of Charles Town Water Department. The meter will be removed and a new one will be installed. All meter tests are performed according to the accuracy standards of the American Water Works Association (AWWA).
If a property owner initiated the request that a meter be tested, the fee is $130 for a 5/8 inch meter, which is found in most homes and small businesses. If test results show a meter is over-registering by more than 2%, the meter fee paid by the customer will be refunded and the account adjusted appropriately. If Jefferson Utilities, Inc determines that the meter has been tampered with, the property owner may incur a fine.
