There are multiple locations where pit lid and meter pit material can be purchased:
Ford Meter Box
Vestal Meter Box
It is not recommended that the meter pit lid is painted. Painting the water pit lid the incorrect color may create issues. Colors represent utilities that are below ground. Each color indicates a universal color to what is buried below ground.
The Standard Practice drawings for the standard service line installation and meter setting for meters can be found in Citizens Water Standard Practice and Engineering Requirements for the Installation of Water Mains, Service Lines, Meters and Appurtenances. This document is posted on the Citizens Energy Group website.
As described in Citizens Water's Terms and Conditions Rule 5.2, unless otherwise approved by the utility, meters 1-inch and smaller shall be installed in a meter pit approved by the utility located on the customer's property adjacent to or near the public right-of-way or easement line.
Upon request of a customer and before installation, the meter pit will be located at the point requested by the customer if practicable and in accordance with sound utility standards. The meter pit must be constructed to protect the meter from freezing and damage from vehicular traffic. In addition, it must be located to be convenient and accessible for the utility representatives. The pit location should be designed to prevent an inflow of surface water.
Meters which cannot be installed in outside pits shall be located inside the structure served as approved by the utility. An inside meter shall be as near as possible to the point where the service pipe enters the building in a clean, dry, safe place, protected from freezing and hot water, and not subject to wide temperature variations. In case of damage to a meter or any of its immediate attachments by reason of any act, neglect or omission on the part of the customer (including, but not limited to, the freezing of an inside meter), the customer shall pay the utility the Damaged Meter Replacement charge prescribed in Appendix B of the Utility's Rate Schedules for repair and replacement of the meter. The meter shall at all times be accessible for reading, inspection and removal for testing.
