Reading Your Meter

Every District customer has a water meter that measures their water use. The information and picture below describes how to use your meter to track how much water is being used.


Meter Location
Your meter is located in a small concrete meter vault near the street.

How to Read Your Meter
The numbers circled in yellow tracks your water consumption, as measured in hundreds of cubic feet (CCF). This is the portion of the water meter that the District reads for billing purposes. (Note: 1 CCF = 100 cubic feet = 758 gallons.)

The numbers circled in orange tracks your water consumption, as measured in cubic feet. 1 cubic foot of water = 7.48 gallons.

The red needle spins clockwise as water passes through the meter. One full revolution represents 1 cubic foot of water consumed, or 7.48 gallons.

This blue dial is a leak detection indicator that moves when small amounts of water pass through the meter. If all appliances, fixtures, and irrigation equipment are turned off and the dial is moving, chances are you have a leak on your property.
