Does my ADU require separate utility meters?

ADUs are eligible for, but do not require individual utility meters.  If you are planning on extending utility connections from the primary dwelling to the ADU, you will need to demonstrate that the existing utilities are adequate to serve the proposed ADU. (Example: gas line sizing diagram, electrical load calculations, drainage fixture unit calculations, etc).
