Residents who have pools or regularly water their lawns may wish to install deduction meters at their residences. These meters measure the amount of water used for non-sanitary sewage at the premises. A certified plumbing contractor can install deduction meters.
The North Strabane Township Municipal Authority (NSTMA) inspects the deduction meter prior to its being placed in operation. There is a nominal fee of $35 per year to inspect the deduction meters. NSTMA will fail the inspection if the meter is not installed at a reasonable height for ease of reading and inspecting and prefers meters to have outside reading mechanisms in order to serve the customer without entry to the building.
Deduction meter inspections usually occur during the month of March.
