(Reading) -- Municipal officials are threatening to shut off the water at a multi-purpose arena in Reading if its water meter isn't replaced.

The Reading Area Water Authority recently sent the message to the operators of the Sovereign Center. The authority says the meter must be replaced within 30 days.

The center's general manager, Zane Collings, says the arena can't make ice if it shuts down the system to replace the meter. The Reading Royals hockey team plays there and is currently in the playoffs.

The city adopted the ordinance requiring new meters 10 years ago. Collings says the water authority just mentioned the issue and that they'll get it done.

The water authority's executive director, Dean Miller, says the letter wasn't the first notice.
