I was just wodering if it is normal for my water meter to be thumping while sprinklers are running? Is there any solution to fix this issue?

Let me get this straight. A thumping water meter is not normal and my city water company will come out and replace it after I call them and complain?

Nope a thumping water meter is not normal. I'd call the city. Where I live they'll come out for free. Here's the bonus of that. If it turns out the water meter is fine. They'll probably diagnose the problem for you. Also where I live, they'll replace a bad meter for free.
Good luck!
If I can't fix it, it's broken!
