How is my water use determined?
Your water meter mechanically records water as it flows through the pipes. For most meters, an employee visually reads the meter each month and inputs the reading into a hand-held computer. If the reading is unusually high or low the computer will beep. Employees are then required to take another look and input it a 2nd time to ensure he or she is reading and inputting the number accurately.
