A portable water meter is a water meter that has a backflow prevention device permanently attached. The portable meter serves two purposes. First, it meters the amount of water used for billing purposes. Second, the backflow device provides protection to the public water supply.


Common uses include filling up a swimming pool, car–wash fundraisers, or business- related uses, such as at construction sites. There is a fee to obtain a portable meter. Please call 865-524-2911 for more information.
