My water pressure has dropped. What should I do?
If the pressure is low at only one fixture, unscrew the screen at the end of the faucet and inspect for rust, etc. If you have low water pressure throughout the house, and your home has a Y-strainer installed ahead of the water meter, shut off the water supply line and check the screen to ensure it is clear. If the drop in pressure is still evident throughout the house, call Public Works at 258-3279.
My water bill is higher this time - what can I check?
A small but frequent water leak can quickly add up. Check outside faucets, make sure the water softener is operating correctly, and check your toilet for leaks by putting a small amount of food coloring in the tank. If coloring appears in the bowl, there is a leak in the tank plumbing. If none of these conditions are present, call Public Works at 258-3279 for further assistance.
