*Parts to be provided by customer at their own expense.

**The price for parts includes the cost of the gate valve and other necessary install parts. The price for parts on a larger meter may vary. Larger meters and landscape meters require an above-ground back-flow protection device to be installed by customers at their expense. Back-flow must be installed prior to the meter being set. Annual inspections are required on all back-flow devices and results reported to Town of Queen Creek's Utilities Division, Attention: Cheryl Staples.
