If a leak results in an unusually large utility bill, you may request an adjustment once the leak is repaired. Submit a Leak Adjustment Request to Utility Billing in City Hall (405 Municipal Drive) or send it to the address or fax number provided on the form. Leak adjustment requests will not be accepted via any other method. When faxing the form, it is recommended that you call to verify that it was received. Forms must be received within 90 (ninety) days of the completed repairs.
