Back Privacy Protection

“Irrigation/Pool Service” is service exclusively used for the purposes of landscaping, yard irrigation, or filling swimming pools, providing that none of the water returns to the sanitary sewer system.

A back-flow preventer is required to protect the public water supply. The Board furnishes this device with the installation of all 5/8” and 1” irrigation meters. On larger meters, the requestor shall furnish and install a back-flow preventer meeting or exceeding A.S.S.E. #1015. Failure to install this device will initiate an interruption of service. Tampering with the device installed by MAWSS will result in an interruption of service and a penalty.

NOTE: The Board does not guarantee that double-head irrigation/pool meters can be installed at all locations requested. If conditions in the field create an additional expense, the customer will be notified and given the option to pay the additional expense or terminate the project with all prepaid fees being refunded.

Irrigation meter accounts are charged a minimum bill of $11.68 per billing period regardless of whether any outdoor water has been used.

Faucets, Hose bibs, sprinkler systems will be a separate installation made by the customer, plumbing contractor, or landscaping/irrigation professional.
