If the water meter can be found then so can the water line. If it's metal, it can be charged with electricity (12v) and can be found easily with a utility locator. If it's a plastic water line, it will have to be cut and a fish tape ran through it and then the fishtape will need to be charged and found in the same manor as a metal pipe. Alternately (and harder) you find the meter and dig up the existing pipe and follow it.

I'd call the city water department (for a meter reading) and landlord.

You live there, call the landlord, it's his problem, not yours.  The water authorities can shut the main off until it's fixed. 

I wouldn't touch anything else since you don't own the property.
