What is a dedicated meter?

A dedicated meter is available to property owners located in a sanitary sewer district.  A dedicated meter will not benefit those properties outside of a sanitary sewer district, connected to septic systems.  The purpose of the dedicated meter is to charge for sewer on the water consumption that is flowing into the municipal sanitary sewer system and not charge sewer for the water used through a lawn irrigation system or garden hose spigot.  The Town of Queensbury plumbs dedicated meters on the main service line, not on a lawn irrigation line.  It is not a deduct meter.

The original water meter registers all water used inside and outside the home or business.  The water charges are based on the original water meter usage.

The dedicated meter is plumbed downstream of the original water meter, lawn irrigation, and garden hose spigot tee connection.  The dedicated meter registers all water used inside.  The water used inside must be going down a drain into the sanitary sewer system therefore the sewer charges are based on the dedicated meter water usage.

The property owner is responsible for buying the dedicated meter from the Town of Queensbury Water Department.  The meter man will install the dedicated meter. A pre-plumbing inspection is required before payment is accepted.  Please call 518-793-8866, Monday – Friday, between 8:00 A.M. – 4:30 P.M. to arrange for a pre-plumbing inspection.
