The Rainbow Municipal Water District Board works every day to efficiently deliver water to our customers in a cost-effective manner. As part of this process we strive to ensure that we are measuring water accurately both into our system from our wholesaler and to our customers through their water meters.
Our wholesale meters are tested annually and over the last year we performed a comprehensive water meter accuracy program to determine the overall accuracy of our water meters. The results showed that we are only registering about 93.6% of the water we send to our customers.
This creates upward pressure on our water rates because we must buy that water from our wholesaler but never receive payment for it because of the inaccuracy of our meters. All told, this adds up to lost revenue of about $1.6 Million per year.
