If you have found a water leak outside of your home, please contact us right away. If the leak is located in the piping between the water meter and the main, we will repair it free of charge. However, if the leak is located in a pipe that is on the homeowner's side of the meter, then the homeowner must contact a plumber for repair. If you are unsure where the leak is, we will be happy to locate it for you.
