If utilities had to turn off your gas and/or electric because of rising water, you may need to obtain a meter reset permit. Check with your provider to see if that will be required before they turn the power back on. Meter reset permits can be obtained over the phone or in person, and no documents are required to do so. If you are the residing homeowner, you can obtain that permit.
