As the snow flies this winter, please remember to shovel a clear path to your electric and water meters and make sure that your meters are not blocked by snow or ice.
A blocked meter can result in injury to New Richmond Utility staff or an estimated bill if the meter reader cannot access your meter to read it.
Thank you for helping to keep your meters accessible.
