A snake skin spotted near a water meter when our meter reader was taking readings recently.

The weather has gotten warm and the snakes are out and about. The recent warm winter means more snakes, which may be hiding in bushes, pine straw or tall grass around your home and waiting for unsuspecting people, like our utility staff.

To decrease the chance of snake unexpected snake encounters, please keep the bushes and grass trimmed around the gas and water meters on your property and keep pine straw away from water meters. This makes it easier to get an accurate reading while avoiding the possibility of being surprised by a snake.
