Hydrant Meter Conditions of Service 

The City of Peoria allows contractors to utilize a water hydrant for two purposes: commercial construction and dust
control. Once an application is approved, city staff will install a meter onto the water hydrant. Certain conditions apply
to help protect the city water system and personnel. Any abuse of these conditions could be a violation of the Peoria
City Code, subject to penalties per Section 25-4, and the city reserves the right to remove the meter without notice.

Applicants must open an account and submit a $2,117 deposit. Deposits are not transferable. The customer will be
billed once a month for the water consumption plus any fees for damage to the hydrant, meter, or water system.

Installation of the meter is performed by authorized city personnel only and may take up to three business days. If the job site is not ready or accessible when the authorized installer arrives, a $50 fee will be charged for each trip thereafter. 

It is preferred that hydrant meters not be installed in areas where vehicle or pedestrian traffic occurs. Safety considerations must be taken when meters are installed near public sidewalks, curbing, roadways or private parking areas where vehicle or pedestrian traffic exists. These areas will need adequate safety barricading prior to meter setup. Customer will be responsible for maintaining proper barricading around meter assembly and hose connection. No barricades or improperly installed barricades could result in installation delays.

City personnel will test the water hydrant prior to installation of the meter, and again when it is removed. If there is
difficulty with the meter or backflow preventer, contact the Customer Service Office to schedule repair. There will be
no charge if it is determined the difficulty was no fault of the user. Meters must remain attached to the hydrants at all

It is the customer's responsibility to supply the proper fittings that adapts to your hose assembly. Do not attach
hoses or fittings to any other part of the hydrant assembly. Do not remove any fittings, backflow preventers or adapters
from the hydrant meter assembly.

The hydrant meter and backflow preventer will be secured with a city-issued locking collar connection. Any other security
measures such as cages or custom locking devices must be approved by the city prior to installation and are the sole
responsibility of the customer.

The flow of water during regular operating hours is to be controlled by the gate valve on the meter and not by the
hydrant. Do not use pipe wrenches to turn water on/off; only use an acceptable hydrant wrench. If the water pressure
from the fire hydrant is not controlled properly, it may cause damage to the hydrant, backflow preventer, meter or
cause injury to the person operating the hydrant.

The water is to be turned off at the hydrant when the construction site is unattended at night, weekends, or for
extended periods of time. The customer is responsible for managing any excessive mud or standing water around the

Theft or damage of a hydrant, meter, backflow preventer, and or water main is the responsibility of the customer. All
charges for loss or damage will be billed to the customer. Peoria City Code: Section 25-7.

If a meter needs to be moved to a new location, contact the Customer Service Office three business days in advance.
Each meter is assigned its own account number; a new account number and deposit will be required for each location.
Only city personnel are authorized to move meters.

Abuse of conditions include but are not limited to: Illegal connections, use for irrigation, water theft, vandalism,
tampering, failing to replace caps, and damage caused by neglect.
