How to Get Your Water Bill Refunded After Leak Repairs
Many cities will repay you for wasted water if you report and repair the problem.
Often water does not simply go down the drain. It will at some point leak and you’ll get to spend on the water you never used. Did you know you can recover some of that ill-spent money? Here’s how.
Water utility agencies across the United States, through goodwill policies or because of federal government regulation, offer clients a way to recover the money they lose when a toilet runs, lawn-sprinkling system bursts, pipeline leaks, and other situations that trigger money to needlessly slip through your fingers.
Depending upon your water utility’s policy, you could recover all or some of that lost money. You may have the ability to seek leakage refunds only one time, once or twice every 12 months, or once every two years.
It’s often you’ll see larger city water suppliers like Charlotte offer this to their customers in order to keep good relations with their clients. It’s something Charlotte has offered for a long time and many others across the country do as well.
We discovered many water utilities– big and small– in the United States that have actually either mandated water leak adjustment policies or ways for consumers to submit “courtesy leak adjustment” claims.
