Print This

(a) Where water is wastefully or negligently used on a customer’s premises, seriously affecting the general service, the utility may discontinue the service if such conditions are not corrected within 5 days after giving the customer written notice.

(b) The consumer has sole control of the amount of water drawn from the utility’s mains through the meter and is responsible for maintenance and repairs to pipes and fixtures beyond the meter. No allowance will be made for loss of water due to faulty fixtures or broken or damaged water pipes beyond the meter provided, however, that if and when it appears that such loss or

leakage has occurred without negligence upon the part of the consumer an allowance may be made by the utility to the extent of such loss.
