If your water bill seems high, it may be due to a leak. A dripping faucet or other unsuspected leaks can result in usage of 450 to over 100,000 gallons of water during one month. If you get an unusually high water bill, please call us at 970-244-1579 so we can have the meter re-read.
The City is responsible for the maintenance and repair of the water line between the main line and your water meter. We also own and are responsible for the water meter. Anything between the meter and your house is your responsibility. Learn how to check for a water leak (PDF).
Water Leak Adjustment
If you do have a leak, please have it repaired as soon as possible! There is a policy to allow for leak adjustments on unsuspected leaks. However, adjustments are not normally approved for internal plumbing leaks (toilet or faucet leaks) or for irrigation (sprinkler) system leaks. Use our Water Leak Adjustment Application (PDF) to apply for an adjustment
Finally, leaks must be repaired before an adjustment is approved. Adjustments are made based on comparison usage from the previous year (if available) and are normally limited to one to two months, unless extenuating circumstances exist. Please call for more information.
