It means it is vital to have a Pressure Relief Valve installed right bu the water meter to protect the water line coming into the building and also protect all the water lines that are inside the building.
When driving around developments in Charlotte built around the eighties you can see little leaks in the yard here and there. Most of the PRV's are installed inside the house meaning they only protect the water lines inside. But the front yard is fare game for the city water pressure to reek havoc on.
