Metering Residential Irrigation Water: Technological Approaches and Cost Estimation
Journal - American Water Works Association
Benefits of metering. In order for a secondary water system to justify metering, the benefits associated with metering must outweigh the costs of implementation. One of the greatest benefits of metering is the ability to manage water supplies. Water meters allow equitable billing and promote conservation and wise water use. This is true in systems in which users pay a fixed fee for a secondary connection as well as in systems using water shares.
