How can I monitor my own water consumption or check for leaks?

There is a leak indicator on the face of your water meter (see image). This black triangular dial should not be moving if all the water is off in the house. However, if the dial is spinning, look for the source. Typically, it is a leaky faucet, running toilet, a broken sprinkler head or there is a leak in the irrigation line. 

Homeowners can also keep track of their daily/weekly/monthly water consumption by recording readings found on the top of the meter head. Simply subtract the numbers to track how many cubic feet are being consumed during a particular time period. 

If your meter is not located in the house because you have a meter pit near your street shut off, due to lack of assess, please call the Water Department at 366-5103, to assist in monitoring for a leak.
