Overview

New Installs is for projects that only require a water meter which is two inches (2") or smaller with no system enhancements (i.e., fire hydrant, fire line, three inch (3") or larger meters, main extensions, etc.).  If your project requires system enhancements, please see "LCU Developer Projects".

If there is an existing meter, please contact Customer Service at (239)533-8845 to establish your account and have the meter turned on.
