Did You Know?

If you harvest leaves, twigs and other yard waste into a pile in a corner of your yard in the fall months, by the spring, it will transform into a rich, dark, soil-like material that can nourish plants and improve the soil texture of your garden.

Hydrant Meter Permits

Boston Water and Sewer Commission (BWSC) Hydrant Meter Permits are available for construction purposes. A deposit of $750.00 is required for the permit. The rental charge for a 90 day period is $50.00. Water usage is additional. If the water returns to the sewer system, there is also a sewer charge. All applicable fess will be deducted from the $750 deposit. Additional charges may apply.

BWSC’s meter must be returned to BWSC at the end of the 90-day period for reading and billing purposes. If the customer requires extended use of the hydrant meter, a new permit can be issued for an additional 90 days with another deposit of $750.00. To obtain a Hydrant Meter Permit, or for more information, please contact BWSC’s Metering Department at 617-989-7138.
