Estimated Bills

Portland City Code authorizes the Water Bureau to issue an estimated bill when a meter fails to register water usage accurately.

Estimated bills may also be issued if a meter reading cannot be recorded because the meter is inaccessible due to such things as inclement weather, overgrowth or other obstruction, failure to locate a meter or illegal usage bypassing the meter. Estimated bills are based on the historic usage of water at the premises.
