Lawn Meters
The cost for a lawn meter is $7.50 per month (non-prorated). A deposit check for $100.00 needs to be given to the Clerk when the meter is picked up at the Clerk's Office. The check will be returned when the customer returns the meter in working condition. The sewer credit will be given when the meter is returned. The $7.50 per month fee will also be assessed when the meter is returned. All meters have to be returned to the Clerk's Office by Sept 30th to prevent any chance of damage caused by freezing.


Water Hardness Information for Setting your Water Softener

Water hardness is measured by the presence of minerals, such as calcium and magnesium in tap water. These minerals originate from the soils our water source comes into contact with as it travels from and through watersheds. These minerals are leached into the water. Hard water can cause some types of scaling in pipes and water heaters, and on plumbing fixtures such as faucets and showerheads. Many people choose to install water softening devices that reduce the hardness in water. Below are the values need to set your water softener. Please contact Public Works with any questions 608-455-1842.
