Greenville Water.

Yes, but GW will need to inspect it when the irrigation meter is activated.

For existing lots with existing meters, GW will kill the second tap, and the customer will pay $500 to add a second meter in the tandem box (or $350 to have a contractor excavate). For new construction and a new tap to curb, GW will set meters on both taps. One for domestic use and one for irrigation use. There is no capacity fee for a 5/8-inch residential irrigation meter. Or the customer can kill the second tap and the customer will pay $500 to add a second meter to the tandem box (or $350 to have a contractor excavate).

The 5/8-inch meter capacity fee is $2,100 and the 1-inch meter capacity fee is $5,250. The customer pays $5,250 - $2100 = $3150. The meter installation is done in separate meter boxes.

The customer pays $350 or $500 depending on who does the excavation. A traditional second meter box will be installed in this case.

If GW excavates, GW gets a locate ticket to do so. If a contractor excavates, the contractor gets their own locate ticket.

Yes, provided the customer does the excavation.

GW will maintain the 18 inches of outlet service from the meter to the ball valve for one year. After one year, GW will only maintain to the meter, as is our standard policy.
