Irrigation Meters and Permits
The Middletown Water Department now allows the use of a second water meter for irrigation purposes. This meter will not be charged a sewer fee which will reduce the cost of watering your lawn and garden. The homeowner is responsible for hiring a plumber to install the necessary piping for the new meter and ensure that the irrigation plumbing is completely separate from the rest of the house piping. The homeowner must fill out and sign the Secondary Meter for Irrigation Permit Application and pay the $325 permit fee. Some important facts about an irrigation meter:
- A backflow preventer must be installed after the meter to protect the water quality of our system.
- The backflow preventer must be inspected annually and a report submitted to this Department.
- You will receive two (2) separate water bills; one for your house and one for the irrigation meter.
- Irrigation meters are not seasonal and will remain in service year round.
- You will be subject to minimum billing requirements even in the winter months.
It is estimated that you need to irrigate more than 8,000 square feet of lawn in order to realize a savings. The permit application and other documents are available on this page or you can call our office at 860-638-3500 for more information.
