Given the need for greater water conservation in California, the state’s residents should be armed with knowledge that can help them take steps to reduce their usage. SB7 phases in water sub-metering for residents of new apartment complexes and commercial building tenants, with goals of enhancing consumption conservation efforts and equitably billing tenants for their water usage. When installed and read, sub-metering encourages water users to be more aware of their usage, giving them a financial incentive to conserve.
