- Not sure if a water leak is your responsibility or ours? Please feel free to call and we will help solve any questions that we can.
- If you suspect there is a water leak that is the town’s responsibility please call us and make us aware of the issue.
- Do not forget, if you have a water leak, it also reflects on your sewage bill. Even a small leak can make a difference in your town bill. Check your faucets & toilets for even the slightest leak and call your plumber if you suspect a problem.
