Step 1: Locate your water meter
In most instances, your water meter is located in your basement along the wall closest to the street.
Step 2: Read your water meter
All customers within the Town of Shrewsbury have their water use measured by a meter. Shrewsbury’s water meters measure water in gallons. Charges for the amount of water consumed are based on the number of gallons used during a billing period.
How to watch for Leaks
Turn off all water indoors and outdoors including sprinklers, ice maker, etc... If the low flow indicator moves, this may indicate a leak in an appliance or pipe. If the meter shows no obvious movement, note the reading on the meter and return in 4 hours to see if there is any change. Note: if you use water during that time, the meter reading will change. If you do notice movement, check all appliances, faucets, toilets, and other water sources for drips or leaks.
