Yes. If the meter is a 5/8” meter & in neutral ground, it will be $310.00 to move it up to 15’. If the meter is not in neutral ground, it will be based on cost to move the meter. Anything farther than 15’ will be considered a new tap and the cost will depend on the meter size. See Policy, Section 3.11 – Meter Relocation.
MAWSS’ meter sizes range from a 5/8” meter to a 12” meter. View document with meter sizes and charges.
For water, it is based on meter size. For sewer, in most areas, it is based on acreage. There are additional capacity or impact fees associated with each service. There is a one-time capacity assurance application fee for new developments, based on what that development will be. Contact Mapping/Connection at 251-694-3155.
No. It is the customer’s responsibility to obtain, install and maintain a grinder pump.
MAWSS does not keep records of water and sewer lines beyond the meter or clean out at the street.
