Curb Box Maintenance

While tending to your lawn, you may have noticed a 4" wide circular curb box with the word “Water” printed on top. Knowing the location of this box is important because it allows our crews access to the shut-off valve in case of a water emergency. Over time, this box can rise or sink a few inches causing a potential problem as you mow your lawn. The curb box cover may become loose or may get damaged or broken. If you've noticed any of these problems with your curb box, please call our Customer Service Department so that we can make the necessary repairs.
