I had a tub/shower valve today I needed to repair today in an older part of Albuquerque. Well the shutoff at the water meter was seized up and i couldn't budge it with my meter key. If it tried to force it and broke the valve i would be liable for a repair, so I had to call the city and wait 45 min's for them to come out and turn it off for me. After rebuilding the shower valve I had to call them again and have them come out and turn the water back on. They told me over the phone that I should never touch any meter valve and every time I need to shut off water to a house to call them. They are not letting us turn off gas meters either before we do a gas repair n the house. Does anybody else have to deal with these types of rules in their state?
