Paducah Water maintains thousands of business and residential services in the area and hundreds of miles of underground water main. Because PW"s infrastructure is underground, it is sometimes easy to forget it is there, making it more difficult to remember that PW may at times need access to this underground equipment.
Please, do not block water meter boxes in your yard with plantings, bushes or mulch. And, be mindful of meter boxes and underground pipes when digging in your yard. Also, do not tamper with the water meter in any way. Tampering with meters is against the law, and PW will take action as necessary if we find a meter or box has been disturbed or damaged.
