The Santa Margarita Water District (SMWD) is updating meters in the Village to new radio read meters that enable SMWD staff to read meters by driving by instead of walking to each meter.
SMWD crews will be working in the Village on Saturdays between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. for the new few weeks. As part of the project, crews will be trimming around and clearing debris (mostly dirt) from the boxes. Meter boxes in need of replacing will be swapped out as well.
As you know, meters must be accessible to SMWD personnel at all times and the agency has easement rights to maintain them.
If you have any questions regarding this project, please contact Gerre Bedell, SMWD, at 949-459-6541.
