What do I do if I think I have a problem?
The first step is to submit the application and the hold harmless agreement along with your last year’s paid Real Estate tax receipt, and a $350.00 non-refundable application fee. This fee will cover the cost of a necessary leak check inspection of the water service line. This inspection is needed to verify the nature and location of the defect.
To provide the highest level of service to our residents, the City has an in-house crew perform all phases involved in the program. Services may include leak check, water service line location and repairs, if the defect is eligible under the program.
