Floating Water Meter Request

Request a floating meter when water is needed for a temporary project and the property does not currently have water service. A floating meter is typically connected to a fire hydrant or an existing water service that does not have a meter installed.

They are typically used by industrial entities, developers, landscape and irrigation companies, construction job sites and even film crews. 

A floating meter – also known as a construction meter – is similar to the standard water meter used at most residences and places of business to measure the water used.

Unlike a standard meter, a floating meter is not attached or fixed to a specific site – it is portable (hence the term "floating"). Floating meters are normally used by industrial entities, developers, landscape and irrigation companies, construction job sites and film crews.

  • Read the rules governing the use of floating meters (Found under related documents).
