Now is a good time to become familiar with your water meters. Although we prohibit people from turning off/on water at the meter. We recommend people become familiar with the location of their meter and water usage. We suggest turning off all the water at your residence, going out to your meter, and take a look at it. If all your water is off and your meter dial is still spinning you have a water leak.
As part of our effort to help conserve water, we will notify customers when we receive information that indicates that a water leak may exist that is within the customer’s control. Customers must fix leaks within five business days of notification. If you are concerned that you may have a water leak or if you have any other questions about the prohibited uses of water,
please contact us 360-748-1285 Monday - Friday 9am-3pm.
