Brief description of project:
The objective of this project is to continue working toward the completion of the Water Meter Implementation Program. This water conservation effort will install new water meters at most residential lots within the project area. This project is consistent with the water meter retrofit program.
The project anticipates placing over 500 new meters in the Southport area and replace over 500 Smartpoint M2 Radio Tranceivers (MXUs) and over 500 new registers at residential areas where the MXU and registers have became obsolete. Additionally, the project will also place over 500 new meter box lids that allows the MXU to be mounted under the lid, and prevent it from exposure to damage. This project will begin construction in June 2017 and be completed in July 2016.
The City is currently 83% metered and continues installing meters to meet the California Assembly Bill 514 requirements to be fully metered. Each residence that receives a new water meter with this project will receive additional information in their utility bill showing the quantity of water being used each month. Every residence that has a meter has the option to switch from flat rate to metered rate at any time by calling the city Finance Department at (916) 617-4575.
