An irrigation meter can only be obtained if there is an active domestic meter at the location. The irrigation meter would be installed on a property under a separate account. A deposit is required, along with a meter and meter installation fee. This account is billed separately and is only charged for water usage. All other charges, such as the garbage fee, storm water fee, NPDES fee, and state taxes are not assessed. A backflow prevention device is required to be installed to prevent possible contamination of the property’s drinking water.
In order to obtain an irrigation meter, an irrigation plumbing permit must be obtained in addition to registration of the backflow preventer and a complete Utility Application and Service Agreement Form.
