The water department does not pull the meters, nor do they lock them off (well the one I recently dealt with anyway..yuk). Anyone can turn the water back on although it's illegal. Owners have to specifically request removal of the meter. Unsuspecting buyers/tenants may find themselves paying for water they didn't use. Who knew.
