Separate meters for irrigation systems are available. In order to obtain an irrigation meter, please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-248-7689. A second meter should only be considered for homes that are on the central sewer system and that will have adequate irrigation needs to be cost-effective. All irrigation meters will be subject to a one-time Water Tap Fee and all associated monthly water fees. PWC has developed an Irrigation Comparison Spreadsheet for use in determining if a second meter is right for you.
Water Impact Fees & Sewer Impact Fees
Water and Sewer Impact fees (also known as “tap” fees) are a means of recouping a portion of the up-front investments, made by the system owner, to build the water and sewer systems. These fees are typically charged at the time the billing account is established. Installation work orders for water and irrigation taps will be issued after payment is received. Check with our Customer Service Department for current lead times on tap installations.
We receive many questions in relation to grinder pumps. Once installed, these pumps are an appurtenance to the home and their on-going maintenance is the responsibility of the homeowner. The grinder pump is an integral part of a low pressure sewer system (LPS.) In fact, the entire LPS is built around the capabilities of the selected pump. Installation of a different pump may result in sewerage back-ups in the home.
Work orders for grinder pump installation fees and sewer tap/capacity fees will be issued after payment is received for these service. Lead times on pump installations vary widely throughout the year. Please contact Customer Service for current installation lead times.
