City Must Install Water Meters

Folsom is in a bit of a pinch, trying to figure out how to install water meters without cost to the residents. Federal law states that all homes be fitted with water meters, however some 6,000 home which were built before 1992 still do not have any. In November, residents passed Measure P, which barred passing the cost on to residents of Folsom. The city is now trying to figure out how to get these meters installed by 2005 or lose some of its water from the federal government. More is in the Bee.
