Leaky water valve prior to water meter


How do I evacuate water inside pipe so that new valve can be soldered?

If you have not yet done so, you may want to contact your local utility, and ask who is responsible for that valve. I am not a plumber by trade, nor have I ever had municipal water, but am quite certain that the responsibility for that valve sometimes lies with them.
