1. Call our office (641) 782-5744, or print out and complete the add-on request form located at the bottom of this page and mail it to us, along with the $100 application fee. 2. Based on the location of where you need the water service, we can decide which pipeline would provide the optimum connection. 3. Once the location is determined, a cost estimate will be made and sent to you.
1. Obtaining signed land easements from any neighbors whose ground must be crossed by water lines to get to your location.. 2.Notifying neighbors whose ground must be crossed that SIRWA will be on their land and any construction disturbing the land will be returned to its original condition in a timely manner.
3. Installing and maintaining your own private water line after the metering pit.
