Where's my water meter? Sacramento has installed 100,000 but many households still without

Sacramento residents, are you wondering where your water meter is? Or dreading the day you have to pay a metered rate?

After the city approved a more aggressive meter installation program in 2015, crews have continued rolling out construction projects on a neighborhood by neighborhood basis without much fanfare.

More than 70 percent of homes in Sacramento now have water meters installed, according to the latest data, and the city is still aiming to finish the rest by 2020.

Projects in south Sacramento and Valley Hi are about to be completed, according to Marc Lee, the senior engineer with the Department of Utilities in charge of the project. Within the next month, projects in the Elmhurst, Oak Park and Colonial Heights neighborhoods will near completion.

Contractors are about to start working in the Golf Course Terrace, Fruitridge Glen Elder and Trade Winds neighborhoods.

Areas with large areas of unmetered homes include East Sacramento, College/Glen, Campus Commons, River Park, Land Park and South Land Park., according to the city map.
