We are on water meters here in Elk Grove, CA. For our land proposal we
need to know how much water we will use in a general way. We'll have 2-3
acres. Other comparable projects in our area are not metered as they were
established prior to the 1992 meter law.
Are there any gardens out there this size who can give me an idea of how
much water they use?? Anyone else on meters? How did you handle this,
especially the expense ($1000) of installation of meter and backflow
We're contemplating 1 & 1/2 inch pipe which gives 750 gallons per minute.
We'll pay $.46 per 750 gallons. Thansk for any info or ideas you may have...
