The Madison Water Utility says that during the heat advisory, they are reconnecting service to five homes that had been previously disconnected.
Those homes are among 49 properties that had service disconnected because property owners have not responded to the Utility's requests to upgrade their water meters.
The Utility believes the 44 other properties are vacant.
When the heat advisory ends, the Utility will again disconnect service to the occupied homes unless they are allowed to make the meter upgrades.
The customers were first notified last summer about the city-wide installation of the new Project H2O water meter reading system.
