- Decision Date : October 2000
Where an Intex or an equivalent meter box is mounted on the wall of a property thereby supplanting the need for a boundary stopcock, one legal interpretation based upon sections 46(6), 158(4) and 163(2) of the Water Industry Act 1991 is that a boundary stopcock is still required. However, this interpretation is not shared by Ofwat and some water suppliers.
