Water meter inspections through mid-October

Water meter inspections through mid-October

The City of Lakewood has retained the company Fathom to conduct a field inspection of every water meter in the city system. The inspection will not affect water service at any location. (This does not include meters in the Golden State Water Co. system east of the San Gabriel River.)

The inspection includes field staff looking into each meter box, taking a picture of the meter, and writing down notes about the meter. Staff should take about two minutes at each meter box.
 
Staff will wear an orange shirt with the words “FATHOM” (pictured). They will also carry company IDs and have a Lakewood city business license.
 
The purpose of the inspection is to identify the exact location of each meter within its box. Then, next year all city water meters will be replaced with new meters.
