Milpitas Public Works is dedicated to providing water services to over 76,000 customers in the city.
All water meters in Milpitas are becoming smart! To better protect our system and customers from water leaks and to bill more accurately, Milpitas is replacing old water meters with smart water meters. The smart water meters allow you to see a detailed view of your water use to help you save water. Learn more about the water meter upgrade project at the Milpitas Water Meter Project website.
- Where does the City of Milpitas receive water?
The City has two water suppliers for the City: San Francisco Public Utilities Commission and Santa Clara Valley Water District.
- Why does the meter service charge increase with meter size?
The meter service charge recovers fixed costs such as billing and collections, and customer service, which do not vary with the amount of water used. It also recovers the maintenance and capital costs associated with the meter. As meters increase in size, they require additional testing and attention, and cost more to repair and replace.
- What are the water use regulations?
Please visit the Save Water Milpitas website for more information on current drought conditions, water use regulations, and water conservation practices.
