Water Submeter Permit Application

  1. Per Section 13.04.130 of the Morgan Hill Municipal Code, all water customers must be separately metered for water consumption in order to promote the conservation of water. While the vast majority of customers have City-owned and administered meters, privately-owned and administered “submeters” are preferred by some multifamily property owners. Submetering is allowed by Section 13.04.130(c) the Municipal Code under certain conditions including obtaining this permit.

    The key component of this permit is that the owner of a property must charge each tenant for the water used by their unit as recorded by the submeter. Documentation of monthly water charges for multifamily are required to renew annually and single family homes with ADUs are required to renew on a five year schedule as provided by the City. Failure to renew this permit may result in the suspension of water service to the property.

  2. I understand that I am required to charge each tenant a monthly water charge based on the amount of water actually used by that unit, as determined by the submeter. A base use, with a charge per tenant for excessive water use beyond the normal use is acceptable to fulfill this provision.*
  3. I understand that failure to renew this permit by January 31 during a permit renewal year may result in the water being turned off to the entire property and/or administrative fines and penalties. Single family units with ADUs are on a five year renewal schedule and multifamily properties are on an annual renewal schedule.*
  4. I understand that renewing this permit requires me to submit documentation that I am charging all tenants for the water consumed in their unit.*
  5. I understand that renewing this permit may require the payment of an administrative fee.*
  6. By submitting this completed form, I agree to meeting the requirements in the Municipal Code and this permit application.*
