Document Description
The proposed project would include installation of approx 3,200 water meters in residential backyards/alleys and front yards (in or behind sidewalks) in the South Lane Park and Richmond Grove areas of Sacramento. The meters would be installed on existing residential and commercial water service connections. Each water meter would include a combination of meter setters, fittings and piping to connect the meter to the water main. The installation of the water meters would be done in a manner as to minimize ground disturbance. The water meters would be placed in a rectangular meter box (28 in by 18 in) with a concrete or Fibrelyte lid flush with the existing landscape grade. Typical excavation for meter box would measure approx 3 ft x 3 ft, to a depth of approx 3 ft. After the meter box is installed, landscape areas would be returned to pre-installation conditions (based on pre-construction photographs taken at the site) or disturbed sidewalks would be restored. Repairs to street surfaces would also be completed, as necessary. Automated Meter Infrastructure systems would be installed, consisting of a network of transponders that would send water meter readings to the city's utility billing and operations center wirelessly. If water service lines need to be replaced, these are typically installed trenchlessly by direction drilling.
