When a customer of the Fall River Utility District calls into the office to make a request for service, and if the problem proves to be on the customers side of the meter, there will be a $50.00 service charge to the customer's next bill.


Examples:


If customer's bill is higher than normal and they request a service man to come out to read his meter, and the meter reading is correct, a $50.00 charge will be added to the customer's next bill.


If a customer has a water leak and can not turn off his water and request a service man to come out to turn off his water, we will send a service man to turn off the meter, but there will be a $50.00 charge added to the customer's next bill (Each customer is supposed to have their own cutoff outside the meter so that they are able to turn the water off without assistance).


If a customer's leak tek on the meter is turning, this indicates a leak on the customer's line, we will explain to the customer how to look at this.


To have a meter profiled to show when water was in use, there will be a $50.00 service charge for this service.


Before a service man is sent out, we will explain how to check for possible leaks and how to read the meter.
