Secondary Meters for Outside Water Usage

The City of Marysville offers secondary meters to customers who wish to have their outside water usage (watering lawns and gardens, washing vehicles, etc.) monitored for the sole purpose of receiving a sewer credit for that usage. To request a secondary meter, the customer must follow the procedures below:

  • Customers wishing to participate in the secondary meter program shall fill out the Application for Secondary Meter for Outside Usage and turn it in to the Utility Billing office. The application will be reviewed and upon it approval, the customer will need to purchase a meter from the City at the current cost. Payment must be made to the City before the meter will be issued.
  • Once payment is received, the City will schedule an appointment with the customer to have the meter installed. All plumbing and fittings shall be in place prior to the scheduling of the installation appointment. All material must meet the City of Marysville Standard Specifications.
  • Once installed, the secondary meter will be added to the customer’s account. This will keep track of the outside water usage.
  • Anyone caught tampering with the meter or making any attempts to utilize this meter or its appurtenances in any way that it was not intended, is subject to the loss of privileges of the secondary meter and penalties.
