The City of Washougal’s Water Division have contracted with Diversified Construction to change out water residential water meters again this year. The project will run through September and will be moving through meter books 14 and 20 on the attached map. The work includes a cost free upgrade to increase remote meter-reading efficiencies.
What to expect:
Changing the meter may require your water to be turned off for a short period of time (~15 minutes typically).
If your meter is being fully replaced, the contractor will knock on your door to let you know before work begins.
If you don't answer the door, the contractor will look at the meter to see if water is in-use in the residence; if water is in use the contractor will come back another time.
If the meter is off, the contractor will change out the meter.
Upon changing the meter, the contractor will use an external hose bibb to flush any air from the line.
