Sprinkler Meters

Meters for water sprinkling are available whereby property owners will not be charged sewer rates for lawn/garden sprinkling if they separate their plumbing for installation of a separate water meter.

The Acceptable Plumbing Layout Diagram (available at City Hall) shows how your plumbing must be laid out to accommodate the sprinkling meter, which will be supplied by The City. You must obtain a Plumbing Permit Application (PDF) and complete the Sprinkling Meter Application Form (PDF).

You will need your plumbing permit to pick up the meter setting supplies from our Stockroom at 501 South Front Street. After completion, and you have passed the plumbing inspection (Building Department 782-8427), you can schedule installation of your sprinkling meter. This will be a separate charge on your monthly utility bill.
