Certify Portable Irrigation Meters & Set Programs for Water Conservation

portable meter NF

Portable irrigation meters are optional tools that can save customers money on water bills when frequently watering lawns or gardens. If you own a portable irrigation meter, have the meter certified this spring before use begins. If your meter is not certified each year, it is removed from the account. Bring meters to the Utility Billing Office at Waukee City Hall located at 230 W. Hickman Road. Access to the Utility Billing vestibule extension is currently available Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Call 515-978-5502 with questions.

Citizens with programmable irrigation systems should speak with service providers to have irrigation schedules set to avoid Mondays and to follow Des Moines Water Works' odd-even watering recommendation to help conserve water and keep irrigation/water rates low during peak times. Properties with addresses ending in even numbers (5018) water on Sundays, Wednesdays and/or Fridays; addresses ending in odd numbers (5019) water on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Please avoid watering between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Thank you!
