Outside of talking to the California state community gardening folks that are on the ACGA website, I'm thinking that you should talk to some Elk Grove, CA water meter certified plumbers.  Tell the contractor that you're looking for a quote ( this gets you in the door) and  if he has done any similar jobs for gardens and or nurseries.  Get names and get their water usage figures.  Also, I'd call the local water board, explain your predicament, and see if they have any leads.
Of course, the Arizona community garden folks have all kinds of tips on saving water ( xeriscapes etc.) and I'd suggest that you contact them as well.

Subject: [cg] CG Water Meters and use

Hi All,

    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...
