How can I figure out how much water I use?

Recently, Santa Rosa Water launched the new WaterSmart Portal. With the water meter upgrade project complete and all 53,000 water customers connected to AMI (advanced metering infrastructure), customers can now track and analyze hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly water use, create customized notifications for high usage, and access water-saving tools. A postcard was mailed from Santa Rosa Water in the month of June encouraging customers to sign up. Registration is easy. To get started, all a customer needs is their customer number, account number, and last billed amount from their water bill.  

More information is available at

For customers that haven’t yet signed up for the WaterSmart Portal, information is also available on your water bill.  Every bill provides information on the gallons per person per day used during the billing period.
