Listed below are the types of services 

Standard Service

Standard Service is defined as service on a specific property designated to receive service on an existing pipeline where pipeline or service facility extensions are not required and special design and/or engineering considerations are not necessary.  Typically, this would include 5/8” X 3/4” sized water meter services set on existing pipelines, pressure collection facilities installed or connected to collection lines no more than five feet in depth.

 Activation of Standard Service:

New Tap – On a property where service has never existed. The Corporation shall charge a non-refundable service installation fee (impact fee) as required under Section G. of the Edom WSC tariff. The service installation fee (impact fee)  is provided in the New Meter Set form for Applicant.  Any debt owed to the Corporation and all fees shall be paid or a deferred payment contract signed in advance of installation.(16 TAC 24.86 (a) (1) (A))

Non-Standard Service

Non-Standard Service is defined as any service request which requires a larger meter service, service to a Master Metered Account, an additional meter or an addition to the supply, storage and/or distribution/collection system. Non-Standard Service applies to subdivisions, additions to subdivisions, developments, or whenever additional service facilities are required for a single tract of property.  The service requirements as prescribed by Section F. of the Edom WSC Tariff shall be required of the Non-Standard Service Applicant prior to providing service.
