Your water meter records the amount of water used on your property in the same manner as an odometer records the number of miles driven in your automobile. The meter is never reset.
When we read your meter, only the first 4 numbers to the far left are used in the computation of your bill. For example, a meter dial reading 013896514 is recorded in our billing database as 0138 HCF (hundred cubic feet) and would show on your water bill as 0138. The difference between the current meter read and last month’s meter read is your consumption for the given billing period.
