Do You Have a Leak?

Here's an easy way to let your meter tell you whether you have any leaks that are costing you money and that you should have fixed.

Most meters have a sweep hand much like the second hand on a clock. Some meters also (or instead) have a small diamond or triangle set in the face of the meter.

Turn off all water faucets and water-using appliances on your property, indoors and out. When you are done, look at your meter. If the sweep hand or the diamond/triangle is moving, there is water passing through your meter, and that means either you've forgotten to turn something off, or you have a leak on your side of the meter.

EMWD does not repair leaks on your side of the meter. That is your responsibility. You may wish to call a plumber, because hidden leaks can be very expensive.
