How to check for water meter leaks


Updated Jan. 16, 2018 8:33:21 A water meter in a New Orleans apartment complex that has been frozen since January has broken free and struck another meter.

The break occurred when the meter broke free of the apartment complex’s cable system in January, and was discovered in the apartment of one of the residents, said Jeanne Soto, director of communications for the New Orleans Public Utility District.

She said a water meter was installed at the time and the meter was connected to the utility’s network.

Soto said the meter had broken free from its cable, and that the utility is investigating the cause.
