A Tallmadge resident using a sprinkler system for outside watering in the summer months can purchase a sewer deduct meter, which will allow a credit for the sewer portion on the water bill. The meter equipment shall be maintained and repaired at the owner's expense.
For more information on this equipment and it's requirements, please call the Water and Sewer Department at (330) 633-0851 Option 4
You may wish to check with the Water and Sewer Department to verify your current water usage. Use of the meter gives the owner a credit on the sewer portion of the Water and Sewer bill only if the water usage exceeds 2000 cubic feet (the minimum charge for sewer service).
All systems will be required to have an approved American Water Works Association/Environmental Protection Agency testable reduce pressure backflow device to protect the public water supply as well as tested annually by a licensed backflow person.
The Backflow Form (PDF) must be completed when inspection is scheduled and the form mailed to:
City of Tallmadge Water and Sewer Department
210 Osceola Avenue
Tallmadge, Ohio 44278
A form will then be mailed annually when inspection is due for the backflow device.
