Landscaping is often a condition for issuance of building permits. Recognizing that developers must invest in landscaping and that the presence of landscaping contributes to the community livability, our policy permits installation of temporary irrigation meters without payment of SDC's for a period of 36 months of establishment of landscape plantings.
Installation of a temporary meter requires payment of actual costs of meter installation and estimated costs for removal at the end of the permitted period. Water bills will be issued fr the meter during the active period. If the meter is converted to a permanent service at the end of the permitted period, full SDC sharges in effect at the time of conversion will be collected or the meter will be removed.
Contact Technical Services to request a temporary irrigation meter.
