The Water Meter Division ensures that all water customers have a water meter to meet state water metering requirements. We inspect, test, replace, and maintain water meters within the city’s water distribution system. We also operate and maintain the city’s automated water meter reading system that provides accurate and reliable water meter data to the utility billing division.
Our staff installs, maintains, and repairs approximately 20,100 residential and commercial meters ranging in size from 5/8 to 10 inches. We also maintain the Fixed Network meter reading system, which consists of 19 collectors and various repeaters that collect reads from radios attached to each meter. Those reads are then downloaded into the water meter database which is used by multiple city departments.

Your water meter is typically located near one of your side property lines near the sidewalk in a concrete box. Help us maintain the water meter by keeping the meter box accessible to our crews by trimming shrubs and trees located near the meter box.
If you plan to add new shrubs or trees to your landscape, please avoid planting near your meter box. As trees and shrubs mature, the branches can affect the radio signal from the fixed network endpoint. Roots can cause problems with the underground water pipes. If you plan to add a retaining wall near the water meter, please contact the Water Meter Division at 916-461-6177 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
