Residents are required to provide adequate heat to the area where the water service enters the building to prevent freezing damage to the water meter.  Any damage to the water meter caused by freezing will be at the expense of the owner.

No person (including plumbers) shall open or close a curb stop other than Town-authorized personnel.  Any person requesting a curb stop be turned "on" or "off" shall give notice to the Town at least two (2) working days prior and will be charged the applicable fee.  Water system users requesting their water to be turned on or off at the curb must contact the Utility Clerk at 519-534-1400 ext 103 to set up an appointment.
