Establishing Water/Sewer Service For New Commercial Construction:

The Town of New Market requires customers to come to the Town Office to establish service for new construction.  We have forms for both water and sewer connection requests.  The homeowner or the general contractor may complete these forms.   Please note that all out-of-town water and/or sewer connections must be approved by the Town Council.  The water meter setup for a 3/4″ or 5/8″ connection has a $515.04 fee if one doesn’t exist on the premises.  Connections larger than 5/8″ should contact the Town Office in order to obtain a quote.  Connection Costs/Tap Fees are as follows:
