High bills? Check for Leaks! City crews cannot check your plumbing system for leaks. If you think you may have a leak, try the following techniques to isolate a problem:

  • Read meter to make sure meter read coincides with billed reading.
  • Read meter before you leave for an extended period and when you return to see if water has been used.
  • Turn water off at your main valve for several hours. When you turn it back on, you should not hear a "rush" of water. If you do, you have lost water in your system indicating a leak.
