Sample Dual Water Meter Ordinance
DUAL WATER METER
The City Council has
determined that it is in the best interests of customer fairness and sound
public policy to establish a Dual Water Meter Policy. The goal of this
Policy will be to more accurately reflect residential sewer usage by eliminating
outside water usage that is not contributing to the wastewater collection
The Dual Meter Policy
will allow residential sewer customers to purchase a dual water meter from the
City to record outside water use only. The type of meter and cost of the
meter will be determined annually by the City Public Works Director.
The residential customer
will inform the City when the dual meter has been installed so that the Public
Works Department can inspect the meter to ensure that it has been properly
The City will read both
the water meter and dual meter quarterly and the sewer usage will be calculated
by subtracting the water usage on the dual meter from the main water meter.
A $5.00 per month Dual
Water Meter Charge will be added to each participating customer's utility bill
from April to December in order to reflect the increased costs associated with
meter reading and bill calculation.
This Policy has been
adopted by the Council of the City of _____________ on this date _____________.
