Rancho Water’s Customer Leak Notification Program

Please Help Us To Conserve Water, Lower Your Water Bill, and Protect your Home!

 

Rancho Water’s automated metering infrastructure provides access to timely and accurate information about customers’ water consumption. Using this information, the District is able to detect non-stop, 24/7 water use and to notify customers that they may have a plumbing or irrigation leak.  As part of Rancho Water’s Customer Leak Notification Program, the District sends leak alerts to residential residents by email, text message, phone call, and/or letter, depending on the contact information we have on file in our billing system. 

Why did I receive a leak alert?

If you received a leak alert, your property’s water meter has recorded non-stop, 24/7 water usage of at least 7.5 gallons per hour every hour over a three-day period, or at least 75 gallons per hour every hour over a monitored 1-day period.  Leak alerts are provided as a courtesy to help inform you that constant usage is occurring. Please note that it is your responsibility to locate and repair leaks or other causes of high water use on your property. Rancho Water cannot locate and/or repair leaks that are located on a customer’s property. If you need assistance finding a leak, please contact a certified plumber or on-site leak detection service.

Please Note: our customer service representatives cannot assist customers with finding leaks. You do not need to contact us if you receive an alert unless you would like to be opted out of receiving certain methods of notification.
