Dual Meters for Outside Watering Available May-October

This is a picture of a dual meter.

Our residential dual meter program helps reduce sewer bills for outside watering needs.   Dual meters are available after May 1 for the summer in our Customer Service Office.

Wastewater/water BPU residential customers whose accounts are current & who use larger amounts of water during the summer are eligible.

You pay a $50 deposit for the meter.  The $50 is returned to your water account at the end of the program (September 30) and after you return the meter to our Customer Service Office in good working order by October 12.

Water in your home normally goes down inside drains which results in a wastewater (sewer) charge on your bill.  Water used for outside projects, however, usually goes right into the ground instead of into the sewer.  If you use lots of water outside (for instance, to put in a new lawn or big garden), you pay wastewater charges for water that doesn't go down your drains in the house. The dual meter, now in its 15th year, prevents you from being billed for this outside water use.
