Gippsland Water has issued a timely reminder to customers before starting up their lawn mowers this spring.
Around this time of year, Gippsland Water receives an increase in calls from customers reporting damage caused to their water meters while cutting long grass.
Parts of Gippsland have experienced a burst of spring growth which could quickly disguise water meters.
Damaged meters usually require repair by a Gippsland Water field crew. Checking the location of water meters is a simple step that could save customers time and money.
Customers who are unsure of where their water meter is are invited to call 1800 050 500 for more information.
