Project Description:

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

This project has a combination of objectives for the meter program: 1) install approximately 209 new meters with mxu’s, registers, and box lids where an existing meter box exists but a meter was not installed previously, 2) remove and install about 328 new meters and mxu’s in residential locations where the existing meters have expired life cycle or malfunction, and 3) place or replace approximately 722 mxu’s and digital registers at residential locations that either didn’t have an mxu or the mxu was obsolete.   This project will begin construction in January 2018 and be completed in April 2018. 

The City is currently 89% 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.
