Q: What happens if I have a water leak?

A: Upon request and approval of the District, a User’s bill may be adjusted due to a leak as follows: The average of the previous 12 months bills for that User will be used by the District as the basis for determining the amount of credit to be given the User after the leak is repaired, but not more than one such adjusted bill or credit shall be given for any one meter during any twelve months period of time. A copy of the repair bill or a receipt for parts must be supplied to the District prior to any adjustment. For services installed less than 12 months, the bill is adjusted to the average of those months of consumption. If no previous record of consumption, the User will be billed for the meter reading cycle minimum.
