For additional assistance, contact us.

At its regular meeting of May 28, 2019, the Board of Directors of the Montecito Water District (District) adopted Ordinance 96 repealing its long-standing prohibition on issuance of new water meters, which had been in place since early 2014 in response to a declared water shortage emergency.  Montecito Water District is now ready to assist with your application for a new water meter.  The District’s application process must be completed prior to the issuance of a new water meter for any property.

  • In accordance with Ordinance 96, modifications of an existing meter service, such as an increase in meter size or issuance of additional meters on a property, are prohibited except under certain circumstances as authorized by the General Manager.
