Water LeaksIt Pays to Fix Leaks
Leaks waste water and money, as well as one of our most precious resources. A constantly running toilet can use 4,000 gallons per day, which if not fixed for a month could add an extra $1,000 to a residential water bill. It pays to fix leaks!

Unexpected leaks can occur in plumbing systems and cause high bills. Left Hand Water District encourages the prompt and complete repair of leaks. As part of the District’s Water Conservation Program, the District has a Leak Credit Policy that provides a partial credit for eligible leaks once in a 3-year period. The purpose of the policy is to encourage conservation, not to fully compensate a customer for the costs of a leak. If granted, the credit shall be in the form of a reduced rate to be applied to all usage above the previous year’s seasonal average for the customer requesting the credit due to a leak. Customers are responsible for paying the water bill while waiting for a leak credit to be processed.
Important Information – Leak Credit Applications
In order to be eligible for a leak credit, the leak must be repaired within 30 days of discovery of the leak.
Proof of repair (Statement from excavation company, plumber, or receipt for parts, etc.) must be submitted with request
