If your meter was installed prior to 2010, you are paying a metered rate already. If your meter is scheduled for installation in 2011, you will continue paying a flat rate until January 2013. Your bill will include your water usage, however, showing you what your usage-based bill would be if the metered rate was in effect. This information will help you identify water leaks or change your water-use habits if you desire. Residents receiving meters in 2012 will pay a metered charge beginning in January 2014, those receiving meters in 2013 will pay a metered charge beginning in January 2015, etc.
