CCMD Public Works is currently in the process of updating our aged infrastructure by installing new water meters. This will give us a base line to quantify and address processed water loss issues.

Water meters of the past are all mechanical devices and, as machines do, they wear out. Many of our meters have far outlived their projected lifespan of 10 years. The new meters are ultrasonic and are warranted to maintain accuracy of .02 gallon per minute for 10 years. Additionally, the new meters are read electronically eliminating reading errors and excess manpower.

If you are noticing an increase in your water bill it most likely is because your old water meter was not registering water usage correctly. To save on your water bill and to help with the drought now would be a good time check for leaks.

One of the most common culprits of household water leaks is a leaky toilet. It doesnít seem a leaky toilet would cost very much but in reality, it could. On average, a leaky toilet can waste about 200 gallons of water per day. Thatís approximately 6000 gallons of water per month! Even a leak of half that amount should be stopped.
