Water meters are usually located in a box in the ground on or near your front boundary. They are normally in a straight line between the road and your outside hose tap. The meter boxes come in many different shapes and sizes, both metal and plastic. There may be debris or vegetation covering the meter.
If the dials stay the same then there is no leak. Reduce your use to avoid charges.
If there is a difference then there is a leak somewhere on your property.
