For homes and businesses in Arvada, there is a meter pit between the water main and the buildings where water usage is measured/monitored. Access to these pits is necessary for billing inquiries and maintenance of the meters. It is the property owner's responsibility that landscaping does not infringe on access to the pit. A minimum one-foot circumference on all sides of the pit is needed for property maintenance access. If you have questions on meter pit access, please call 720-898-7070.
