By default, AMI meters will be installed for each water customer due to the benefits they provide our community.
An opt out option will be offered for those who wish to keep their current metering technology. The current metering technology requires significantly more staff time and resources than AMI. Other cities and water districts, such as North Marin Water District, have implemented a service fee for customers (approximately $10/month) who chose not to upgrade to AMI. Petaluma is exploring fee structure options as part of our current utility rate study.
Please stay tuned to this webpage for details on the opt out process.
