Where is my water meter and what does it look like?

The water meter is installed in the basement of most properties.  Properties without basements typically have a utility closet where the furnace, water heater, and other mechanicals for the property are stored.  The meter is on the street side of the property where the water line connects to the property from the water main.  The picture below is an example of a water meter. 

Pictured below are two examples of water meters that are installed in properties in West Allis.
