Leak Related Bill Adjustments

A one-time bill credit can be requested during the life of the utility account, for excess consumption used due to a leak. A leak adjustment must be requested by the owner. Documentation of the repair (receipts/invoices) must be submitted along with the leak adjustment request form. A maximum of three consecutive billing cycles may be adjusted, and compared to the same time period for the past 2 years. If consumption history is not available, additional time may be needed to establish an estimated consumption amount to use for the adjustment.
