Transfer of a main water meter

Any change in the billing name for a main water meter must be reported to the Customer Service Department as soon as possible (e.g., in the event of the sale of a single-family home, or when tenants of a single-family home move in or out).

Required information:

  • Meter operating address, otherwise meter number;
  • Water meter reading (e.g. photo);
  • Date of meter reading (date of handing over of keys or date of deed of sale at the notary);
  • National identification number (matricule), if the meter is taken over by a new subscriber.

To be communicated

  • either online;
  • or by phone at 58 77 1-1730;
  • or by e-mail;
  • or by post:
    • Administration communale de Differdange
      c/o Customer Service
      B.P.12
      L-4501 Differdange;
  • or in person to the Customer Service Department.

Important information:

The meters of the different apartments of a residence are not managed by the municipal administration, but by its syndicate. Therefore, the change of the billing name of a meter must be reported to the syndicate. The municipal administration only bills the main water meter of a residence to its syndicate.

Practical advice:

  • The main water meter for single-family homes is round and has a blue cover.
  • The eight-digit meter number is located on the edge of the meter.
  • The unit of measure on the meter is m3.
  • To read the meter, note the five black digits (m3) followed by three red digits (liters). The black and red digits are separated by a comma. Example reading: 01234,567 m3
  • Our water department (T. 58 77 1-1814; e-mail) will be happy to help you if you have any problems reading the meter.
  • The settlement of the municipal taxes for the drinking water supply and the sewerage system is carried out in three-month periods with three advance payments (January to March, April to June and July to September) and an annual statement as part of the bill from October to December.
