DO NOT INSTALL “SMART” WATER METER SIGN
Ramona Municipal Water District customers:
To opt-out from “smart” water meters and continue use of an analog (old style) water meter:
* Contact your water district to request the opt-out, in writing and by phone
* Place sign inside water meter box (folded, in a large ziplock baggie) to remind installers NOT to install a smart meter
Note: San Diego Municipal Water District (and other) customers can download the Word document (see link below) to modify it for SDMWD and use in similar fashion. Be sure to call, document, and confirm acceptance of your opt-out request in writing to your water company.
Reasons to opt-out: smart water meters associated with higher bills, overbilling, and exposure to dangerous microwave radiation associated with serious health impacts, privacy and hacking issues. Scroll down to see how to opt-out from “smart” gas & electric meters, too! Opt-0uts for these are already approved, statewide in CA and many other states.
