Become familiar with your water meter
Your water meter is the key tool to help you learn how much water you use and to help identify possible leaks. It's a good idea to periodically check and record water use so you can identify when you may be approaching your allocated water budget amount.
Your water meter is a highly accurate and dependable water-measuring device that registers all water used in your home and landscape. Most water meters are easily accessible and are located in the basement. If you don't have a basement, it may be in your garage or a crawl space.
Centennial Water meter readers record water usage on a bi-monthly basis, which coincides with the bi-monthly billing cycle. Water bills are based on billing units per 1,000 gallons of water used.
