Request a New Water Meter

The department performs new service installations for new and additional water meters upon request.

An application for new service request is required to install a water service line from an existing water main for the first time, as well as whenever the relocation of service is greater than five feet from the existing service.

The request may take 8 to 10 weeks. Installations on Florida Department of Transportation roads can take up to six months. You will need to complete a new account work form if no account exists.
