The last thing we want is for our water to run out, but the water meter that is now on the side of the road is not going to save our water supply, according to the Associated Press.
The meter is on the street outside of a convenience store in Lubbock, Texas.
It reads “Water” and is broken.
The meter has been sitting there for two months, with no one using it.
We contacted the Lubbocks Water Utility and the company said they could not fix the meter.
Now we have to go to the local water company, which told us that the meter has already been repaired and will be back up within 24 hours.
“I’m sure we’re not the only one out there that is looking for a water meter and they’re going to get one for free,” said Lubbocker resident, Eric Lee.
Lubbock Water Utility says that the old water meters that were still attached to poles are now in storage.
We asked them to explain how this happened.
They told us it was due to a mechanical failure.
“That’s what we call it when it’s not working,” said Michael Wojcik.
“That’s why we got our water meter.”
We reached out to Lubboo Water, which said that it is currently inspecting the water meters.
However, we still have to call them and tell them what is wrong.
The water meter sits on a street in Linn, Texas, which has had a lot of flooding.
The Lubbos Water Utility said that the water was turned off on the meter in January.
Now that it has been turned back on, the meter is working fine.
