The City is installing one meter per parcel on residential properties of up to four dwellings (five units and more will be addressed in the future). The property owner will receive the master water bill. At that point, it is the property owner’s option to hire a licensed plumbing contractor to install additional water meters at the owner’s expense in accordance with City standards. The City will read up to four meters per parcel and bill the customers separately. In addition to purchasing an approved meter from the City, a plumber will likely charge you between $1,000 and $2,000 for the modifications needed to accommodate additional meters.
