Water Meter Information

General Information
  • Water meters are replaced only if existing meter stops functioning. However, the town will not cover the cost of replacing the meter if it breaks due to customer negligence.
  • If contractors or plumbers are doing work on the interior water lines, the town can turn the water off at the curb stop. To do so please contact Mike Stein (Water Plant Lead Operator) at (306) 435-7062. Give Mike Stein at least 24 hours’ notice to make sure he is available. The town will do their very best to make someone is available in emergency situations.
New Build Information
  • Any new Builds in Moosomin require a new Water Meter with outside reading pad
  • It is the Builder, Contractor, or Plumber’s responsibility to install the new meter, the wire for the pad, & the exterior pad reader. Pad readers must be located to provide easy access by the Town Staff; in the front of the building, and not under decks or in fenced areas.
  • The Town of Moosomin supplies all the materials needed to install the water meter and pad reader. Please contact Mike Stein (Water Plant Lead Operator) at (306) 435-7062 to make arrangements for pick-up of supplies.
