Water Meters for Outside Use

The City bases their sewer charges on the amount of water used each month. To avoid paying sewer charges on water used for outside purposes, such as lawn watering and swimming pools, residents may purchase a second water meter. Contact the Utility Billing Clerk to arrange for this. The resident would then pick up the meter at the Water Treatment Plant to be plumbed and installed by the resident's licensed contractor. After installation, an inspection from Water Department personnel is required prior to service being started.

Tap Fees

Tap fees are charged when a building is newly constructed or undergoes a major renovation of use.
