Does someone have to be at the location for utilities to be connected?
Yes, LPU does require someone to be at the location to ensure that nothing is on at the house. If no one is at the location, and the water meter indicates usage, the meter reader will turn the water back off. Please contact the utility office at 512-556-3641 or, after hours, the police department at 512-556-6235 if you have a problem with your utilities.
