The Town of Mountainair will purchase a meter that will be assigned to commercial customers who get water out of water hydrants. This will be a tamper free water meter in which we record the meter reading when we give it out and record reading when we receive it. The Town will assign a certain water hydrant to the customer to get water from, to allow for flushing and exercising of hydrant, and to allow for monitoring the customer’s consumption. There will be a $50.00 per incident fee if the customer is found using a different water hydrant than they were assigned by the Town. If there is an issue with the hydrant, the customer is to contact Public Works Department or Town Hall to get assigned a different hydrant. Customers will be assigned a water ticket which shall be used to identify themselves. With the purchase of this water meter, the Town will require all commercial customers to use our water meter, and not use their own. There will be a $10 per day charge for the meter. If the meter is used monthly, the customer must bring it in at the end of each month to have a meter read and a bill will be generated. If the meter is taken out within the last 10 days of the month, then meter can be returned the next month and does not need to be brought in at the end of the first month of use. If the Public Works Department needs to assist in filling up at the hydrant, there will be a $25.00 per fill-up charge. If the customer damages or does not return the meter, there will be a $1200 charge for the meter.

If for any reason a meter is not registering because of malfunction or vandalism, the Town will estimate the monthly water bill using an average of three (3) months previous usage before said malfunction or vandalism.
