New Water Meter Installation
Location of Project
This project is located in the Southport area and is bounded by Higgins Rd to the south, Paradise Way to the east, Linden Rd to the north, and Mandarin Ct to the west.
Brief Description of Project
Sensus Water Meter Body Model SR II-EB & MXU Model 520m
The objective of this project was 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 250 new meters in the Southport area.
The City was currently 83% metered and continues making steady progress toward 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.
