Deduct Meter Options
A deduct meter enables customers to realize a savings for water that does not enter the sanitary sewage system. Examples of water that does not enter the system: lawn sprinkler systems, swimming pools, washing vehicles.
Deduct meters can be used by residential and business customers. The savings appears on the sewage portion of the monthly Sewer & Water bill. Deduct Meter Request
Is a deduct meter right for me?
A typical home uses 30,000 gallons per year for outside watering. A customer that uses 30,000 gallons for outside watering would realize a savings of $214.80 (30 thousand X $7.16) yearly. $7.16 is the sewage rate per 1,000 gallons.
By dividing $576.00 by $214.80, it will take less than 3 years to realize a savings beyond the investment.
Individual water usage varies, so the realized savings will also differ.
