Please take into consideration any utility connections that are on your property when you are doing any landscape work. These may include the meter box, fire hydrant, or sample station. Our field crews need access to these items in order to read the water meters, service the fire hydrants (the Fire Department needs access to the fire hydrants as well in case of an emergency) and take water samples from the sample stations.

Please keep an unobstructed pathway to and around our utilities. If you are planning to concrete an area where one of our utility connections resides, please call us in advance at 650-991-8200. We will provide a new box if necessary, and possibly upgrade the utility connection if warranted.
