At the customer's request, Peru Utilities will test the water meter at no charge to the customer, as long as that same meter has not been tested in the previous 12-month period. Each subsequent meter test in a 12-month period will be charged $56. This fee is for meters that Peru Utilities has the equipment to test. If the test is performed by a third party, this fee will be for time and materials, but not less than $56. If the test results are outside the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission guidelines for meter accuracy, this fee will be returned to the customer.
