Water Meters

The Finance Department uses scanners to collect data electronically from meters to determine monthly charges for service.

Meter Types

  • Primary water meters: Measure water flowing into a home or business. These are used to determine water and wastewater charges.
  • Irrigation meters: Available for automatic systems for lawn and landscaping irrigation. Customers do not pay wastewater charges. A backflow prevention device is required on homeowner irrigation systems to prevent contamination from being drawn into the town's water system 
  • Reclaimed water meters: These are purple and measure the amount of reclaimed water used by a residence, business, or office. Reclaimed water is treated wastewater that is recycled for non-drinking purposes such as irrigation. It is stored in a separate water tank and piped through lines easily identified by their purple color.
