WATER METERS AND RATES.



The attention of householders is invited to the contents of this Notice which aims at supplying information
and guidance on the reading and testing of water meters as well as enumerating the rates payable for consumption
and use of water.
The meters which are being installed are capable of registering consumption up to 10,000,000 gallons.
Every meter consists of five small dials, registering as follows:-
(i) hundreds
(ii) thousands
(iii) ten thousands
(iv) hundred thousands
(v) millions,

all of which are set within a larger dial which registers every gallon of water used. All these dials work clockwise
but not necessarily in the same direction. The large, thousand and hundred thousand dials move from right to left
while the hundred, ten thousand and one million dials move from left to right. These dials register in the same
manner as the electric meters.
Any one can read the meter by simply noting the numbers on 9ach dial. If the pointer on a dial is between
two numbers the lower number is taken. Thus if a pointer is between the figures 8 and 9" the reading of that
dial is "8 ".
As the standard unit is 1000 gallons charges will he made to the nearest 1000. If at the end of the first
quarter your meter reading is as follows--
(i) thousand dial "5 "
(ii) hundred dial "8"
(iii) large dial 92"

The consumption will be 5,892 gallons and the units charged will be 6,000 gallons.
Each building will be supplied with a Meter Record Card on which the reading of the meter and the units
used will be recorded at the end of each quarter.
The Regulations provide that whenever any question shall arise as to the accuracy of any meter, the house-
holder may, on depositing into the Treasury the sum of $3.60, require that the meter be tested. If the error found
in the meter does not exceed three per cent. the meter shall be deemed to be correct but if it is found to be incorrect
the amount of the deposit will he refunded.
To obviate any unnecessary request for the testing of a meter and the attendant deposit the householder is
advised to satisfy himself of the accuracy of the meter by making the following rough check.
(i) make sure that all taps and fittings in the premises are closed, then read the meter.
(ii) open one tap and fill a container of not less than 4 gallons capacity (i.e. a kerosene tin). Close the
tap and again read the meter. The difference between the two meter readings should be equal to
the quantity in the container.

(iii) Only after having made this check should a householder make a request for a meter test.
The testing of meters will entail, particularly in cases where the house is situated at a fair distance from the
Public Works Department, the sending of a meter testing tank of 200 gallons capacity on a vehicle with a plumber to
the spot and this costs money as well as time. The deposit which householders have to make must not be considered
as a penalty or device to obtain money from the public but rather as a deterrent to check unnecessary complaints.
The Water rates are as follows:
DOMESTIC.
Minimum charge of $1.20 per quarter for the first 3,000 gallons or part thereof consumed and an additional
charge of 50 cents for each further 1,000 gallons consumed.
NON-DOMESTIC.
Minimum charge of $3.00 per quarter for the first 3,000 gallons or part thereof consumed and an additional
charge of 80 cenits for each further 1,000 gallons consumed.
The rental payable for meters are as follows:-
B inch Meter ... 30 cents per month 90 cents per quarter
i inch Meter ... -$1.00 per quarter
Exceeding 3 inch but not exceeding 1 inches ... 60 cents per month $1.80 ,,
Once again the co-operation of the Public is requested during the installation of meters.
