When requested, the Department of Public Works can place your water meter on “Vacation” status. We can monitor for water use while you are away, and alert you of potential issues at your residence or building. Although these alerts will not catch every issue, they have proved effective in notifying many residents of leaks and saving them money.

Please update your account to include an emergency contact phone number, while you are away. Additionally, we can email or mail your bill(s) you at an alternate address while you are away to avoid late fees.

If you plan to be gone for an extended period of time, and would like the water to your home shut off at the curb stop, please contact the Department of Public Works.
