Leak adjustments are intended for water line leaks that cause an abnormally high monthly water bill. Adjustments are not granted for improperly set irrigation systems, excessive watering, or water lines broken as a result of negligence.
Satisfactory proof of repairs must be submitted with required application. Proof of repairs must include:
1. A description of the repairs that were done.
2. A copy of the repair bill or receipts for necessary parts to complete the required repairs.
The city assumes no responsibility for costs associated with repairs.
Water bill adjustments caused by leaks will be for one-half of the total water consumption over and above the average consumption for that residence. The average consumption will be calculated using the consumption for the same month’s billing cycle as in the previous three years. In the event that three years of water consumption records are not available, the finance director, or his/her designee, will determine the average consumption based on the best information available.
Leak adjustments are allowed once per year, per residence. Due to extraordinary circumstances, exceptions to this rule may be authorized by the finance director or his/her designee. (Ord. 1909(part), 2007; Ord. 1845 §2(part), 2004).
