Why is my water bill so high?
There are various reasons for high water bills. Often it can be outdoor watering. You can read your water meter before and after using the sprinkler system to get an accurate usage for lawn watering. Water leaks are another reason for high usage. A 1/32" in diameter can use 180 gallons in 24 hours, 5,400 per month.
How can I check for a slow leak?
Choose a time when water will not be used for at least 6 to 8 hours (over night or if no one will be home during the day). Take a meter reading before and after the allotted time, if there is a difference in the readings there is possibly a leak.
What do I do if I have a leak?
If a leak occurs during the business or after hours, please call the Utility Billing Division for a service technician to turn off your water so repairs can be made. Call the Utility Billing Division once your repairs are made and your water is back on. It is okay for your plumber to turn back on your water. If the leak causes your bill to go up higher than normal, contact the Utility Billing Division to learn available billing options.

How does ensuring the meter reader clear access to the meter help keep costs down?
With hundreds of water meters to read, the meter reading staff must be able to quickly access your water meter in order to collect meter readings, which will result in correct charges to your utility billing account. To avoid any delays in obtaining a reading, the meter reader requires clear access to the meter. If a meter reader can quickly collect a reading from the meter on the first visit to your property, it helps keep utility costs down, which benefits all customers in helping to keep rates stable.
Here are some helpful tips for making sure that your water meter is accessible:
