Get connected in 2 easy steps.
1. Hire a contractor that has a plumber.
You’re responsible for bringing the water connection from the road hookup (curb stop) to your dwelling. To do this, you need to hire a contractor and plumber from the approved list.
Click here to download the approved contractor & plumber list.
TIP: Get quotes from several approved contractors and plumbers before hiring your team. Individual contractors and plumbers may charge different fees for the same service.
2. Hire contractor and plumber separately.
Take control of your town water connection from the start by including the contractor and plumber in all discussions and decisions on the project.
TIP: Your contractor and plumber can guide you through such upfront decisions as whether to use the existing well for irrigation and determining if you need a meter pit.
Once you hook up to town water, you may not use well water inside your dwelling (including for sinks, tubs, and toilets). You may use well water for lawn and garden irrigation.
The contractor will complete and file the application as well as all other aspects of the project.
What to expect from your contractor and plumber:
- Starts the process by filling out a water connection application online
- Connects your dwelling to the water pipe in the road
- Applies for a plumbing permit online
- Installs a free* water meter to the pipe coming into the dwelling
- Separates your existing well from the domestic plumbing (if you maintain your current well for irrigation)
* Property owners must apply for a connection within a year of curb-stop installation to receive a free meter from the town. Click here to see when you must apply to receive a no-cost water meter.
