Second Meter Program:
The Town of Westwood offers the residents a “Second Meter” program.  The Watering Device shall be provided by the applicant and remain the property of the owner.  A Plumbing Permit must be obtained at the Building Department prior to proceeding with installation.  Application for the “Second Meter” Program shall be filed with the Westwood Sewer Department and all meters must be registered with the Sewer Department prior to their initial use.  All “Second Meter” devices must be properly sealed and tagged at all times in order to be an active meter. “Second Meter” readings will take place in the late summer and/or in the fall and credits will be made to the sewer usage based on these readings and reflected on your December and March sewer bills. 

If you have any questions regarding the “Second Meter” Program please call the Sewer Department at 781.251.2589.
