Deduct Meter Information

A deduct or irrigation meter is a separate meter that measures the amount of water used for items such as lawns, washing exterior surface, washing vehicles, filling pools, etc. By having a deduct meter installed, the sanitary sewer rate fee is not assessed for water usage in the "irrigation system" or designated exterior hose bibb(s). A separate meter is the only way to accurately measure the water used exclusively from outside faucets.
