TEMPORARY FIRE HYDRANT METER FEE

A customer who applies for a temporary fire hydrant meter must pay a deposit to cover the cost of loss or damage. If the meter is lost or stolen, the entire deposit is forfeited. If there is damage to the hydrant meter, the actual cost of repairs to the meter is subtracted from the deposit, and the remainder will be refunded to the customer after satisfactory repairs have been made. Upon safe return of the meter without damage, the full amount of the deposit is returned to the customer. Water usage is billed at the appropriate rate, separate from the deposit. The applicant must bring the temporary fire hydrant meter into the meter department on or before the 15th of each month for an actual usage reading.
 Size Charge 
1-inch meter  $500
2-inch meter  $1,000
