The Town of North Attleborough requires that all new meter installations be scheduled through the Water Division.  You can schedule an appointment by calling 508-695-7790.  Please note that it appoints may be scheduled severals days after the booking so please plan accordingly.

New residential and commercial meter installations require that the plumbing be "Meter Ready" at the time of the appointment.  A location shall be considered "Meter Ready" if the plumbing work is fully completed on both sides of water meter, including horizontal mounting to the wall, 1/4-turn ball valves on each side of the meter and meter spuds, spaced to accept the proper sized meter.  The meter shall be located in a readily accessible location.  If the meter is determined by our field personnel to not be "Meter Ready", the meter will not be installed and the property owner will need to make the proper corrections and reschedule the appointment.
