residential property owners previously paid for their water and sewer usage on their property tax bill based on a flat rate according to their parcel size. Currently, the Town of Discovery Bay is in the process of implementing residential water meters as part of a statewide water conservation mandate that requires all residential properties to have operational water meters by 2024. The CSD has already rolled the program out in Discovery Bay West, so homeowners in that portion of Discovery Bay receive a monthly water bill and no longer have the cost added to their property tax bill. To meet the government mandate, approximately 1800 homes in Discovery Bay CSD need to be online by 2010; the remaining 4,200 homes must be on meters by 2024.
Most of the District’s commercial establishments already have water meters installed so that business owners pay for actual usage.
