Free Water Checkup Program

Get a Free Water Checkup and Save

The purpose of a water audit is to show people how to use water wisely, and to make their homes and businesses as water efficient as possible. We offer free water audits to single family, multi-family and commercial customers. During the visit, a trained water conservation inspector demonstrates how to read the meter, detects leaks and estimates the volume of any leaks discovered. At the end, we provide additional conservation tips based on the results of the review. We also make referrals to other programs, if applicable.
