There are a few reasons you could be experiencing high water usage.
- Outdoor Lawn Watering: Lawn watering during the summer months can increase your water bill by a substantial amount.
- Slow Leak: A slow leak or dripping can increase water usage very quickly. Check toilets, faucets and water softeners. When you know that no one is using water, look at your water meter...if the dials are moving, you know you have a leak somewhere. You may need the assistance of a plumber to correct the problem.
Water meters usually slow down when they wear out or break. Our Public Works Department will test the meter if you wish. However, if nothing is found wrong with the meter, you will be charged for this service.
