If you receive a very high water bill, you may have leaks inside your plumbing system. You’re responsible for your own plumbing. If there is a leak, please contact a plumber. You’ll need to pay for the water used.

To check for leaks:

  1. Turn off all water fixtures, including humidifiers, air conditioners and icemakers.
  2. Record your water meter reading (Learn more about how to read your water meter).
  3. Do not use any water over a period of several hours.
  4. Check your water meter reading. If the reading has not changed when you return, your plumbing is watertight. If your meter reading does change, you may have a leaky faucet, toilet, or pipe.
