Meter size is not the same as service size. Meters are generally one size smaller than the service pipe without adversely affecting flow. A water meter that is sized down will still have a flow rate that is beyond that of the recommended pipe velocity for the service pipe. The standard meter for 1″ service is a 3/4″ meter (flow rate of 25 to 32 GPM). Max velocity of 1″ copper service is 10 feet/second or 25 GPM.

In accordance to the requirements set forth by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), the Township of Charlevoix has officially adopted the state of Michigan cross connection rules to protect the public water supply system. A cross connection is defined as a connection or arrangement of piping or appurtenances through which a backflow could occur. Backflow is defined as the undesirable reversal of flow of water of questionable quality, wastes or other contaminants into a public water supply. The purpose of this program is to avoid contamination of the public water supply by preventing and eliminating cross connections. It is the Township of Charlevoix’s intent to carry out a comprehensive and effective cross connection control program (CCCP) to ensure public health is protected and the requirements of the Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act are complied with.
