The City of La Porte has a schedule to check your meter periodically to be sure it is working correctly and to repair it if necessary. The meter won't cheat you - meters in need of repair will under-register, rather than over-register, your water usage.
However, if you feel strongly that your meter is not working properly, you may request that your meter be tested. If the test results show that the meter is over-registering water usage, you will not be charged for the test. To schedule a test, call us at 219-362-3175.
Meter Change-Out Program
The City of La Porte regularly replaces meters that are 10 or more years old. When your meter is changed, meter shop crew will knock on the door and notify you that your water will be turned off briefly while your meter is changed. There is no direct charge for a new meter.
