Large Water Meter Projects

The resources listed below are provided to assist developers, engineers, and contractors with requirements related to new Large Water Meter Services, those greater than 2-inches in size, within Spartanburg Water's service area.

We require all projects to adhere to the standards and requirements outlined in Spartanburg Water's Technical Specifications for Water Distribution System Improvements, available in PDF format below.

Spartanburg Water Engineering Department will provide design drawings for large water meter services upon request. We also offer standard details and specifications that can be incorporated into site utility plans to be prepared by others.

We feel that a key to the success of large meter service projects is early communication. Therefore, we ask you to contact us at the outset of a project so that we can assist you. Please contact Joel Watson at (864) 580-5681 or jwatson@spartanburgwater.org if you have questions.
