Portable Water Meter
View the Brochure
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.
