If a leak occurs during the business hours of 7:30 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday - Friday, please call the Utility Billing Division at 972.874.6010 for a service technician to turn off your water so repairs can be made. If an emergency leak is discovered and you require assistance turning off the water after hours, please call 972-539-0525, and the appropriate personnel will contact the Service Department to come and turn off your water. Call the Utility Billing Division number when your repairs are finished for your water to be turned back on. Yes, it is okay if the plumber turns it back on and most often they do. If the leak causes your bill to go up higher than normal, contact the Utility Billing Division to see if an adjustment is available.

Choose a time when water will not be used for at least six to eight hours (such as over night or if no one will be home during the day). Take a meter reading before and after the allotted time. If there is a difference in the readings, there is possibly a leak.
Sewer rates are based on water consumption during the months of December, January, and February (when water consumption is generally the lowest). For additional information, please see the Sewer Averaging section of the website.
In the meter box located on your property is an angle stop. The angle stop has two ears on the left and right sides. The middle of the angle stop is marked with an arrow, indicating which direction the water is flowing. To turn off the water at the angle stop, place channel locks or a special turn off wrench (which can be purchased at your local hardware store) on the center of the angle stop, where the arrow is located. Turn angle stop clockwise until both ears are together, approximately 180 degrees. To turn water back on, turn the angle stop approximately 180 degrees the opposite way, or until the arrow on the angle stop is facing the meter.
