All water is metered. Sewer is charged based on the water reading. meter readings are done approximately the 15th of each month. It will be a rare occasion in which a reading will be estimated. The town does have a laptop which auto reads each meter when the laptop is in close proximity: therefore customers will not see any evidence of lid removal. The autoread system flags meters with leaks. Those leak notifications are passed to the customer. The customer needs to try to find the leak as soon as possible to avoid a high bill.
