HOW TO READ YOUR WATER METER
One way that you can keep an eye on your water usage is to read your meter regularly. Most of the homes that are connected to the Township water supply will find their meters in the basement. As you will see in the diagram, the meter head looks similar to a car odometer. The standard meters can be read by using the first four numbers on the left. These four numbers can be subtracted from your current bill to get the number of units.
The red triangle under the N in Neptune is a low flow detector. If this triangle is spinning, that will tell a resident that there is a small amount of water being used, which could be helpful in determining leaks in the home.
