Sacramento, gettin’ serious about water

Sacramento holds by far the largest body of unmetered water connections in California – about 62,000. These customers are allowed to consume all the water they want and pay only a flat monthly rate of about $41 for an average home. With a few exceptions, all other California communities are entirely served by water meters that measure how much customers consume and bill them accordingly.

But Sacramento hopes to beat a state deadline of 2025 to get its customers metered!
