OUC provides portable water meter rentals for construction and other temporary situations in the OUC service area where normal service is not reasonable.
The portable meter measures the amount of water used, which is then billed to the customer on a monthly basis. Portable meters on hydrants are equipped with reduced pressure backflow prevention devices that are to remain installed at all times. These are required to protect the water system from contamination. If the portable meter will be mounted on a truck, the backflow prevention assembly will not be provided, since the trucks are required to have an approved air gap installed and inspected by OUC within 15 days of pick up.
Submit Monthly Portable Meter Reading
It is the responsibility of the customer to provide a reading for the portable water meter. The meter should be read between the 27th and 2nd of each month. Failure to report monthly meter readings will result in a non-refundable penalty of $140 per occurrence.
