Usage Guidelines

Water Meter Boxes Accessibility

Items should not be placed on or around the water meter box as this prevents the meter from being read. It also hinders maintenance should an emergency leak occur at the meter or inside the house, in which case the homeowner needs an emergency water turn-off. Your cooperation is appreciated. 

All water used from the City of Watauga for any purpose must be metered. A temporary meter can be issued upon payment of a deposit. Residents or businesses that need water from any source other than their meter, should call 817.514.5843. 

The use of fire hydrants without prior permission from the City of Watauga is considered tampering with city property. Water use without a meter is considered theft and violators will be prosecuted.
