Application for Fire Hydrant Meter
Step 1 - Please complete online application. Please allow one business day for processing.
Step 2 - Once you receive an email notification that your application has been approved, bring your deposit to our SAWS West Side or East Side Customer Centers. You will receive fire hydrant meter payment verification paperwork.
Applications are effective for a period of one (1) year from the date approved by SAWS.
Step 3 - Present payment verification paperwork to the Supply department personnel at the SAWS East Side Operations Center located at 3930 East Houston Street. Meters will not be issued unless payment verification paperwork is presented. Please remember that those individuals requesting multiple meters will need to have the necessary paperwork for each meter.
This paperwork will need to be retained as proof that the meter(s) is/are compliant with the new SAWS fire hydrant meter program and must be presented to SAWS staff while in use when requested.
Step 4 – Fire hydrant meter reads will need to be reported by the 20th of each month. In addition, all meters must be returned to SAWS annually for preventative maintenance and inspection. Please present your SAWS bill at that time, which will state the meter due date to the SAWS Meter Shop located at 3930 East Houston Street.
