Reading Your Meter

 

HOW TO READ YOUR WATER METER:

The meter measures the water in cubic feet. One cubic foot of water equals 7.48 gallons of water. Charges for the amount of water consumed are based per 100 cubic feet of water used or 748 gallons.

The dial on the meter will resemble the odometer in a car. The reading is taken from the figures shown under the words cubic feet. The meter read on your meter is the total number of cubic feet of water recorded since the meter was installed.
