Irrigation Meters

Before You Irrigate

Thinking about irrigating your lawn and flowers? You may be interested in an irrigation meter to suit your needs. The Town of Fort Mill offers meters for "irrigation only". The advantage of having an irrigation meter is that you are being charged for water usage only and not for sewer. This can save you money.

Without an irrigation meter, you accrue charges for both water and sewer. The irrigation meter is normally installed directly beside your current house meter and then it is the homeowners/plumber’s responsibility to attach your separate service line or connection to the new meter. Remember if your irrigation system has a leak, that no adjustments can be made. Please contact the Utilities Department for prices on irrigation meters and to learn more about installing this service at your home.
