Water Meters

Water meters are important to gauge how much water your home is using -- and a key indicator whether water may be wasting due to leaks.

Request an Additional or New Water Meter

Information on requesting a new water meter and the associated costs.

Reading a Water Meter

Learning how to read your water meter is important, particularly if you receive a high water bill. Reading your water meter may clue you in on a leak in or around your home that results in a high bill.


A submeter is used to measure the water not entering the sanitary sewer system and is normally associated with irrigation, cooling towers on buildings and pool filling. By installing a submeter, you will be able to water your lawn and fill your pool without paying a sewer charge for the water used.

Floating Meters

A floating meter is typically connected to a fire hydrant or an existing water service that does not have a meter installed. A floating meter is typically used when water is needed for a temporary project (such as a construction job) but is not otherwise available.
