Second Meter for Outdoor Watering

Board of Selectmen policy allows a separate water meter to be installed for outdoor watering. Consumption from this meter will be charged a water rate only.

Required procedure to install a separate meter:

  • Hire a plumber. Your plumber must obtain a plumbing permit from the Office of Community Development located in the basement of the Town Office Building.
  • Once your plumber has completed the necessary work for the installation (tail
    pieces must be installed), your plumber must call the Office of Community Development at (781) 862-0500 x211 or x212 to make an appointment to have
    the work inspected.  No bypass (jumper) is allowed.

  • Bring the Plumbing Permit receipt to the Department of Public Works Operations Facility at 201 Bedford St. to pay for the meter.  The price of the permit will be deducted from the meter price.

      • 1"    meter      $275.00          Spacing end to end – 11"
      • 3/4" meter      $250.00          Spacing end to end – 9 ¼"
      • 5/8" meter      $225.00          Spacing end to end – 7 ¾"

  • After the work has been inspected and the meter has been paid for, call the Water/Sewer Division at (781) 274-8353 or (781) 274-8354 to make an
    appointment for the Water/Sewer employees to install the meter.

Commercial properties must purchase their own water meter as specified by the
Lexington Water/Sewer Division.  All required backflow devices must be installed and a cost of $500.00 must be paid prior to any meters being installed.
