Meter readings for the purpose of billing occur on the 1st day of every month. This reading (current reading) will be subtracted from the previous reading to give you a total consumption. Your bill is based on two factors; the size of the meter, and usage. See the Water Rates Schedule (PDF) to determine your actual costs.
Each meter sends several hundred hourly readings 4 times per day. With this information, we are able to display usage graphs hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly for you as well as determine if staff needs to visit the meter for any alarms. These graphs can be viewed at the Ceres Water Portal by simply creating an account.
