City of San Diego Says It Will Check Every Single Water Meter

The city of San Diego is expanding its probe into complaints over mysteriously high water bills by checking the 250,000-plus meters across the city. City spokesman Jerry McCormick said the expanded investigation has already begun into both smart and manually-read water meters. The announcement comes less than a day after the city divulged that more than 300 families were overbilled by an average $300 in four neighborhoods – Carmel Valley, Rancho Bernardo, Mira Mesa and Rancho Penasquitos.
