How can I tell if I have a water leak?
Turn off and leave off all water taps inside and outside your home.
Record the meter reading and return in two to three hours to check for
movement. If the meter reading has changed, you may have a leak. Many
meters have a small red triangle on the meter face that is designed to
detect even small leaks. If this red triangle is moving when you have
all water off inside and outside your home, you may have a leak. If you
suspect you have a leak, we encourage you to call the District’s
customer service line and a field representative can be dispatched to
your location for further assistance.
