Detecting Leaks

You can now monitor leaks and receive timely alert notifications through our no-cost AquaHawk Alerting system. Learn more about our AquaHawk customer portal.

Alternatively, you can also use your meter to detect water leaks. 

  1. First, locate your meter, often found in the basement for residential customers. 
  2. Turn off all fixtures around your home, and make sure your irrigation system is not running. 
  3. With all water turned off, make a note of the current meter reading and keep fixtures turned off for one hour. 
  4. Then check back at the meter, if the reading has changed, you have a water leak.

If you have determined that you have a leak or you do not have access to your meter, you can troubleshoot common indoor and outdoor leaks on this Leak Detection Checklist (PDF).

Remember, anything on your property that uses water can leak!
