DPW to Temporarily Stop Meter Readings
During the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Village of Saranac Lake DPW will not be sending staff into the homes of residents to test their water meter, or for any other reason outside of an emergency.
If you have concerns regarding your water meter and feel it may not be reading accurately check the following:
At night before bed obtain reading from the meter. Refrain from using water after taking the reading until the next morning when you can take another meter reading. If there is a difference between the two meter readings, then you have a leak somewhere in the dwelling. Check all toilets and fixtures for leaks along with any visible plumbing in the dwelling. Typically, every drop that goes through the meter is registered, so no drip or leak can be too small to affect your bill.
If residents have questions or concerns regarding the current policy, feel free to contact our office at 518-891-4160.
Hours of Operation:
Monday - Friday 7:00am-2:30pm
