The District makes every effort to obtain actual meter readings in order to avoid estimated billings. When a customer is not home, we drop off a small green postcard so that a meter reading may be filled in and returned in time for billing. These cards sometimes arrive in the mail after bills are issued. If you receive one of these cards, you may submit the information electronically through the use of the online form instead of through the mail.
The typical meter dial is shown here for your reference. To provide the correct reading, you simply need to write down every digit that you see. This meter reads 081710
