Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1. Why is my water meter being relocated?
The existing water main currently runs east-west in the back of the residences needs a replacement. The new water pipe will be relocated inside Greenwood Drive’s right-of-way. New water service meters will be provided along Greenwood Drive for each residence. The new water meters will provide privacy for the homeowners and convenient accessibility for the City of West Palm Beach for meter reading, maintenance and/or repair. The City of West Palm Beach will be responsible for connecting the water service line from the new water meter to the residence.
