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. 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. Inspections began September 18 and will continue through mid-October. 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. For more information, please call city hall staff at 562-866-9771, ext. 2140.
