As a customer, it is your responsibility to protect the meter from harm. Any meters located in vehicle-accessible areas, such as on or along a wall adjacent to a road, driveway, or parking area, shall be protected by 4″ bollards (preferred) or a concrete barrier. Standard curbs, curb stones, or sidewalks do not satisfy this requirement.
Bollards are steel posts that are installed in the ground and filled with concrete, thereby preventing the meter from being struck and damaged by a vehicle. If you would like information on specific bollard protection placement or design, contact our Marketing Department.
