What Are Private Meters?
Private meters are secondary water meters that are installed on your main water line by the customer and at the owners' expense. The purpose of a private meter is to measure non-sewer uses such as lawn irrigation systems, pools, and any other watering which does not go into the sewer system.

How Do I Receive a Credit?
After your new private meter is installed you must register the new meter with Jefferson County Environmental Services Sewer Service Inspector. It will then be the homeowners or business owners responsibility to inform Jefferson County Sewer of the private meter installation and request an inspection for that meter.

It is also the responsibility of the homeowner or business owner to read the meter and submit the reading to the Jefferson County Environmental Services Department to receive credit. You will receive a credit in your Water Works account once the reading has been received.
