Bulk water may be purchased from the City of Spearfish in two different ways: hydrant meters or a bulk water station at the Ellingson Well on the corner Dakota and State Street.
Bulk water fees are $5.00 per 1000 gallons.
Hydrant meters can be installed for larger projects. This meter attaches to a fire hydrant at a specific location near your project. To order a hydrant meter, stop by the Finance Office and sign the hydrant meter agreement and pay the associated fees. The meter will normally be installed within the next 24 hours.
Hydrant meter fees:
Administrative set-up fee $75.00
Refundable Deposit, 2” and larger $1000.00
Refundable Deposit, 1 ½ and smaller $200.00
Water usage fee, minimum of 10,000 gals $5.00/1000 gallons
Hydrant meters will be installed by Utility Department staff and will be locked to the fire hydrant. If you need the meter moved, contact the Finance Office, (605) 642-1325. There is a $50.00 fee to move the meter.
