Leak Exemption Request

Non-eligible exemption requests include but are not limited to:

  • Unattended or forgotten faucets and nozzles.
  • Faulty irrigation valves, timers, and systems.
  • Dripping faucets and other home maintenance items.
  • Leaking toilets.
  • Water heater leaks may be considered depending on the nature of the problem.
