CITY-WIDE METER UPGRADE PROJECT


The Water Department is currently working in neighborhoods around the entire City replacing aging water meters. Most meters are installed inside your home, typically in the basement area. The new meters are lead-free and also feature radio read technology, which means we will now be able to read your meter from the street. There is NO cost to you for this replacement. Technicians may knock on your door for access to the meter or leave a gold-colored tag with the office contact information to schedule an appointment. LEARN MORE 

SWITCH FROM FLAT RATE TO METERED WATER

Flat Rate is charged when homeowners do not have a water meter installed to measure actual water usage. Many homeowners may very well be paying more than necessary by being on a flat rate service, which is equivalent to a household using 39,400 gallons of water for a six-month billing cycle. The average two-person household consumes 22,400 gallons semi-annually. In the fall of 2016, the Claremont City Council approved a 17.5% increase per year for flat rate water customers. The semi-annual bill for water only will be charged as follows:

2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 2021
$201.00 $236.20 $277.50 $326.10 $383.20 $450.30

   Claremont Water Department Operation “GET THE LEAD OUT”

ADVISORY NOTICE

Recent events in Flint, Michigan and other cities around the country have led to important discussions of the safety of Claremont’s drinking water.  Claremont does not have the corrosion issue of the Flint River and the City's municipal water system is in compliance with EPA standards for lead and copper.  However, there are some lead service lines in the water distribution system.

Over the next year, the Claremont Public Works Department will be investigating the condition of service lines extending from the water mains to individual properties throughout the City.  If a service line is identified as possibly containing lead, the property owner will be contacted directly by the Public Works Department to discuss the City's program to replace the City's portion of the service line from the water main to the curb stop at or near the property line and to install a new curb stop and meter at no cost to the private property owner, including all road excavation and repairs. 

If a service line is identified as possibly containing lead, property owners are strongly encouraged to coordinate with a contractor and the Public Works Department for the property owner to replace the remainder of the service line from the curb stop into the property. 

Where lead service lines are identified, the Public Works Department will provide property owners with information on the risks of not replacing their portion of the service line and methods of reducing lead exposure both during and after construction.

The City looks forward to working with you to eliminate all lead in our water distribution system.  Our goal is to have all the lead pipes removed from the city's side of the service lines as quickly as possible. If you have any questions please look at our web site or call us at 603-542-7020.
