Meters are read the 3rd week of the month. For more information on billing refer to the Utility Billing department.

Commercial

Contact the Waukee Water Department with the specifications on the water meter for the commercial building. The meter will then be ordered by the Water Department and installed when the plumbing for the building has been completed.

The commercial water meter hook-up fee is based on the size of the meter and materials needed when the meter is set and is billed out separately from the building permit.

Irrigation - Non-Subcontractive Set-up
