We have seperate water meters for our building, irrigation, and cooling tower. The meters are owned by the water department and are read by them electronically. The water meter reading data is collected by them at different times approximately twice per day. The usage for each meter is available to view on-line on a daily basis.

Is it acceptable to view and analize our on-line usage information from the water department on a weekly basis and print it out for documentation? Monthly summaries will be printed out as well.

I feel this is an effective use of our time. It will be very difficult and potentially dangerous to have our building staff attempt to access the water meter pits in the wintertime to view the meters on a weekly basis. I would like to submit the electronic on-line printouts as documentation for these credits.

Please advise.
