Why is my water usage so high?

Some reasons for high water usage are as follows:

  • Outdoor lawn watering. Lawn watering during the summer months can increase your water bill by a substantial amount.
  • Slow leak somewhere in the home/business. 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.

Water meters usually slow down when they 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.
