Meters, Mains and More
The system that brings water from the HWC wellfields to your home is made up of many different components. While water mains and water meters are probably the most recognizeable elements, there are also corporations, curb boxes, valves and remote readers. The water mains are the miles of underground pipes that transport the water from our wells to our customers’ homes. They are located within public right of ways or within easements. The mains are buried at a depth of 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 feet and are usually located on the side of the road where the fire hydrants are stationed. The Hazardville Water Company owns 101 miles of water mains, which are made from a variety of materials.
