Online Bill Pay Customers -

If you pay through our website portal, your payment will post to your ICMSA account the next business day.  If you pay through any other online bill payment service, such as your own bank, please allow plenty of time for us to receive your payment.  Online bill payment services, such as your bank, cut and mail us a paper check.  The transfer of funds is not automatic, and in some instances may take 7-10 days or longer depending on bank processing time and the postal service.  In most instances, paper checks are entered and posted to our system the same day that they are received here at the office.  Please take this into consideration if you are paying through any other online bill pay service other than ICMSA's.


                  

Water Service Line Specs

SERVICE LINE SPECIFICATIONS 

  • Water service line must be ¾” C.T.S. plastic pipe with a 250 PSI minimum rating unless otherwise specified.  NO COPPER IS PERMITTED.
  • All underground connections will be compression fitting only.  Solder and glue connections are not permissible underground.
  • Service lines should be installed in a trench 40” – 42” deep, with a #10 or #12 tracer wire run in the ditch.  Leave extra wire so it can be run into the curb box.
  • Every ditch must be dug out to the curb box. (DO NOT dig on the road side of the curb box)
  • The ditch in front of the curb box needs to be 3’ wide by 5’ long so that the crew member can make the connection.
  • Ditch must be pumped free of water.
  • If using a well prior to installing city water the well must be disconnected at the time of the inspection.
  • Immediately after the line enters the basement a shut off valve is to be installed (we require a ¾” brass ball valve).  After the shut off a PRV (pressure reducing valve) will need installed.  Leave a 13” horizontal space for the meter and then install either a dual check valve or a backflow preventer.  All of these must be done prior to inspection.
  • Service lines MUST be inspected before covering.  Trench backfill for covering the line should be clean fill with no large stones.  Sand and 2RC stone make a good bedding around the pipe. 
  • During the inspection the inspector will make the connection to the curb stop, flush the line, and then set the meter.  The meter must be in a heated area.  If the home does not have a basement or is more than 150’ from the main line, a meter and meter pit will be installed next to the curb stop.  Outdoor monitors will be connected to all meters so that a serviceman does not have to enter the home to read the meter.
  • Once the meter has been installed you may connect your plumbing to the service line. 
  • A reminder that the tap in fee must be paid prior to scheduling an inspection.  A security deposit may be required of the home owner and will be required if the home owner requests bills be sent to a tenant.
  • If any of the above criteria are not met the inspection will fail and have to be rescheduled.  There will be a $50.00 service fee charged for each rescheduled appointment.
  • Call the I.C.M.S.A. office at 724-349-6640 for an inspection appointment.  Office hours are Monday thru Friday 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  A 24 hour notice is required to schedule the inspection.
