Irrigation meters are best for customers who use a substantial amount of water outdoors, where the water does not enter the sewer system. Hartselle Utilities’ sewer fees are based on the amount of water a household uses. An irrigation meter registers outdoor water usage, such as sprinkling the lawn or garden; washing cars, driveways or decks; and filling swimming pools, and the customer is charged for the water only, not the sewer system charge.
The cost for irrigation meter installation (1″ meter) is currently $811.50. This cost includes $500 for the meter and installation along with a $311.50 Water System Development Charge. The current monthly meter charge is $14.91 (as of July 1, 2023). Please click here to view current usage charges per 1,000 gallons used.
