As part of the District's commitment to empower our customers to manage their water, comply with State conservation mandates and minimize operating costs (i.e. your water rates), the District started implementing advanced meter reading technology in 2015 with an expected full deployment date of December 2019.
The new system will allow customers to receive leak alerts, view daily and hourly water usage patterns, determine how much water is being used for irrigation for domestic, and prevent high water bills.
The new meters relay information via radio to a data collector so we can present data on your online dashboard. Meters are typically located in the sidewalk and send data less than 1% of the time, producing significantly less exposure to radio waves than cell phones, baby monitors, laptops and 50 to 100 times lower than other utility meters already attached to the house (California Council on Science and Technology).
