Water Meters

Water MeterFresno receives 60,000 acre-feet of high quality water annually from behind Friant Dam. To comply with the terms of the Central Valley Project (CVP) water contract with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation that supplies this water, the City of Fresno is required to measure (meter) all water deliveries to customers. As a result, Fresno was mandated to install water meters and bill by a volumetric rate, all of its residential customer accounts by January 1, 2013.  Commercial and multi-family accounts were already metered and billed a metered rate.

In order to comply with the terms of the contract and state law, the City is installed water meters at all single-family residences that did not already have meters. The multi-year installation project started in 2008 and was completed by December 2012.
