Water Metering Project
To comply with the provisions of the State’s Urban Water Management Plan Act, Climate Change and related provisions of the California Water Code, the City pursued and was awarded DWSRF construction funding for its Metering System Replacement Project (Project). This Project is a step toward a more modernized water metering system that will assist the city and its residents to better manage the City’s groundwater resources.
Scope of Work
The upgrades will include replacing the current water meters for new meters with Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI). AMI uses a low-powered communication device that is added to the new water meter to transmit hourly water usage information over a secure network approximately four times per day. The Project is anticipated to begin in October 2022 and be completed by January 2024.
Project schedule updates will be scheduled by the City as required.

Benefits of the Metering System Replacement Project
Access to your water usage information. Once the customer portal becomes available, residents will have the option to register through utility billing to access the city's online water use portal to see your water use on a daily and hourly basis.
Reduction of water loss. Water leaks on the homeowner side of the water meter can be identified on a real time basis with hourly reads and reported more quickly by the homeowner.
Save money. Knowing your hourly and daily water consumption history enables you to better understand and make informed decisions about your account water used in actual water bill.
Water alerts. Set up leak and other usage alerts so that they are automatically sent to you and continuous water alert is identified, which is often indicative of a water leak. This can save money and prevent property damage that often results when leaks run undetected.
