Mock Billing:  “Mock” or sample bills were sent out quarterly in 2016. The mock  bill showed owners their property’s water consumption and what they can expect to be billed under the new metered rate structure. The new metered rate structure started in January 2017.

Metering will help to ensure water supplies are safe and sustainable as a whole. The District has made significant commitments to water conservation and the benefits of Universal Metering are:

1. Reduced water consumption

2. Good environmental stewardship

3. Better equipped to deal with future water shortages

4. Increased chances at receiving senior level grants for infrastructure projects

5. Reduced cost in future infrastructure construction

6. Pay for what you use billing structure

The installation phase of the multi-year Universal Metering project began in spring 2014.
