Except for water used for fire fighting, all water provided by the utility is metered. The utility owns all meters, except for those used on fire supplies, which are owned by the user.
All one-inch and smaller meters are read and billed on a quarterly basis; typically, these are the domestic accounts. Larger meters—mostly for commercial property and large multiple dwellings—are read and billed monthly.
The utility replaced all of it water meters from 2010 - 2013, moving to a radio-read metering system. Utility staff obtain the meter reading from the property by driving by and using a receiver to pick up the coded-transmission from the metering system. This reading is then uploaded to the computer billing system to produce the water use information required to create a bill.
