Water System

Water Meter Information

Water is measured in hundreds of cubic feet (100 cubic feet = 748 gallons). The sewer consumption rate is based on your water use.

Meters are read every other month. City meter readers use a hand-held device to record the readings. The device then imports the information into the city’s computers making the meter reading faster and more accurate.
