New Water Meters are Coming to Oxnard!
In January 2022, the City started conducting field surveys and pilot installations of water meters. Citywide meter installations will begin in early 2023 and are expected to be completed by the end of 2024. All commercial and residential properties in Oxnard will have their meters replaced during the estimated 3-year project (1 year for the pilot and 2 years for the citywide installation).
Meter Replacement Schedule
Water customers will be grouped by neighborhood and assigned a month and year in which their meter will be replaced.

Notification: A door hanger will be placed on your door at least 7 days before work begins in your area to notify you of when your meter upgrade is scheduled to be completed.
Impacts to You: You do not need to be home during the meter installation. Contractors will knock on your door to notify you that your installation is starting. The installation should be completed in approximately 15-30 minutes. Contractors will temporarily shut off your water, for up to 30 minutes, while your new meter is being installed.
Work Hours: Meter upgrades will take place between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
If you have a medical condition that requires planned water disruption, please call the Contractor Superintendent phone number that is listed on the door hanger notification that you received. You may also call PMI at 1-855-229-5562 (toll free) to schedule an appointment to install your new meter.
