• Estimated vs. Actual Readings

    If a meter reader is prevented from reading your meter, an estimate of utility consumption will be made in preparing your bill. Among the reasons for estimating your meter read and, in turn, your bill are:

    • Debris preventing access
    • Inclement weather
    • Locked gates or entrances
    • Aggressive and unrestrained dogs

    When unable to obtain an "actual" meter reading the BWL makes the closest estimate possible of utility consumption based on your history of utility usage.
