Irrigation/Sprinkler Meter Information
Texarkana Water Utilities (TWU) allows customers to have a separate meter for their sprinkler systems in order to help save money and also to help monitor the difference between household usage and watering usage. If you would like more information, please contact our Engineering Dept. at 903-798-3800.
Existing customers that have an irrigation (sprinkler) meter may save money during the winter months by having TWU turn off the irrigation (sprinkler) meter prior to the winter months and then have it turned back on prior to the watering season. Instead of paying a minimum charge during the off season, you would only pay an account fee of $10 for Texarkana, AR residents, $15 for Texarkana, TX residents per off and on, which would be $20 per season for Texarkana, AR residents and $30 for Texarkana, TX residents, instead of an estimated $45 for minimum usage during this time. If you have any questions, please contact Customer Service at 903-798-3800.
Don't forget, if you have an irrigation (sprinkler) meter, the backflow device is required to be tested every year!! Please contact our Environmental Division at 903-798-3870 for additional information.
