Isn't there a requirement for meters to be calibrated on a regular bases?

Why should the consumers pay for something we have no control over?

Water meters can run fast, I work for a full service water meter company...depending on the size of the meter, there are rare occasions that a rubber gasket is swollen causing the meter to over register, but if it's a residential meter, then it's not a common thing.
