Flipping Your Strip? Don’t Cover the Water Meter Lid!

The city is part of Weber Basin’s Flip Your Strip program. This program gives homeowners rebates on their water bill for flipping their park strip. We encourage all residents to flip their strips to preserve water and save money. BUT…. When you flip your strip, please don’t cover water meters.

We’ve had an uptick in residents burying water meter lids with rock or other materials when they flip their strips. This is a big safety hazard and flooding concern for homeowners. If you cover the water meter lids, our crews cannot get to them in an emergency to shut the water off. Keeping the water meter lids free of debris will help our crews keep you safe if there is an emergency.
