I have a park under contract in Pennsylvania and there is public/city water and sewer. The water has a master meter at the front of the park that the park pays for and there are private meters on each home. The private water company does the reading and directly bills the home owner. During due diligence, the state (PA) DEP stepped in and said that if the park wants to continue billing the home owners for water, then “ports” need to be installed to test the water lines that run from the master meter to each home (the lines are owned by the park).
Does anyone have any experience with this? I thought it was pretty common to have private meters and since the water is supplied by the public utility, this was a non-issue. If anyone can offer me any insight, it would be greatly appreciated.
