Leesburg hydrant meters are to be used only on designated hydrants (click to open map) within the Leesburg service area. Developers and contractors may lease Town-supplied fire hydrant water meters for use during construction by contacting Betsy Payne, at 703-771-2762. Meters are not available on a walk-in basis; therefore, contractors / builders must CALL FIRST. This ensures their specific hydrant meter lease contract will be ready for signature, and the requested meter is available. (Please note that the lease contract incorporates Late Hydrant Meter Report Charges should any reporting be late.)

If the contractor is using any type of water truck, tank, or container, the vehicle or tank must be inspected by the Town’s Environmental Compliance Officer or his designee to ensure backflow / cross connection protection is in place on the truck, tank, or container before the meter is released to the contractor. A Department Of Utilities Cross Connection Inspection sticker will be affixed to the truck, tank, or container.  Inspection is valid for one year.

Meters are leased for one year at a time and are billed quarterly. The contractor is responsible for submitting quarterly readings. Contractors must submit readings to the Town during the first 10 days following the end of each quarter either by email to Betsy Payne, or by phone at 703-771-2762, or by fax at 703-737-7185, or by completing the online Hydrant Meter Reading Form. Below is the schedule for reporting readings:

1st Quarter  January 1 - March 31  Reading is due between April 1 - 10
2nd Quarter April 1 - June 30 Reading is due between July 1 - 10
3rd Quarter July 1 - September 30 Reading is due between October 1 - 10
4th Quarter October 1 - December 31 Reading is due between January 1 - 10

* Please note: failure to report readings within the specified time periods will result in a $100 late fee for each quarter, even if there was no charge in the reading from one quarter to another. Readings given outside the date range will not be accepted.

If the leased meter does not work properly, the contractor should return the meter to the Utilities Department at 1385 Russell Branch Parkway SE for repairs (phone number 703-771-2762). The contractor will be notified when the repairs are completed and the meter is available for pickup. A detailed repair sheet will be prepared and the costs of repairs will be included on the next quarterly bill.

Use only Leesburg-issued fire hydrant meters on Town of Leesburg fire hydrants as per Proper Use Guidelines (USO APROPIADO). Failure to comply is a misdemeanor and violation of Leesburg Town Code Section 34-22, punishable by $2,500.00 fine or one year in jail, or both.

When the contractor no longer needs the fire hydrant meter, the meter should be returned directly to the Utilities Department for final contract close out.
