Metered Billing and Downsizing

As of January 1, 2012, the District converted to metered billing. Metered bills consist of two components:

  • Fixed Service Charge: This charge is based on your meter size and is billed bimonthly in advance of service.
  • Commodity Rate: This charge is based on water usage and is billed bimonthly in arrears.

Finding Your Meter Size

If you are unsure of your meter size, it can be found on your billing statement under Service Type. If you have trouble finding it or don’t have a current billing statement, our Customer Service staff will be happy to assist you. Call us at (916) 967-5723 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
