In order to ensure Greene County Sanitary Engineering customers are charged fairly for the resources they use, the Greene County Board of Commissioners adopted a resolution on September 21, 1995 requiring installation of water meters for sewer customers currently on a flat rate schedule and for new customers that would not be connected to a public water service.
All county sewer customers must have water meters installed on their wells or other private water source that contributes to the sewage flow. This program applies only to customers who have public sewer but not public water. Water customers are already metered for sewer use.
Inspection of the well line meters will be required for new construction before permits can be issued. If conditions permit, the meters may be installed in underground vaults in readily accessible locations. However, there will be a number of connections, where the installation must be indoors, with remote reading devices used to determine usage. Each connection will have to be evaluated for the appropriate installation.
Customers are encouraged to contact the Customer Service Division of the Greene County Sanitary Engineering Department at (937) 562-7450 to arrange for installation of well-line meters.
