I just received a “leak” notice on my utility bill, now what?

A water meter will indicate a possible "leak" when the meter has been running continuously over the prior 24-hours. The leak could be a large amount of water but more likely it's a slow leak or drip. 

Every drop counts, so take the following steps to conserve water and reduce your water bill.

  • Check for toilet leaks. 79% of water lost in the home is through toilet leaks. Often silent, these leaks can waste up to 300 gallons of water per day. Replace refill valve or flush valve when necessary. 
    • Check for a leak using food coloring. Add 12 drops of food coloring into the tank, and if color appears in the bowl 1-hour later, your toilet is leaking. 
    • Check for a leak by shutting off the water valve to the toilet overnight. If you hear it start to refill when you turn it back on in the morning, your toilet is leaking.
  • Check for dripping faucets and hose bibs.
  • Check for a malfunctioning water softener.
  • Call a Plumber for help.
  • Did the leak cause a high water bill...learn more about Bill Adjustments.
