Quote from the Bureau:
“If you suspect a leak, you may need to hire a professional leak detection company to pinpoint its exact location and a contractor to perform the repairs. There are leak detection service companies listed in the yellow pages under Leak and Pipe Locating. Any utility contractor should be able to repair a leak once the location is known.”

**Leak Detection: If you suspect a water leak, turn off all the faucets in the house. Check your water meter to see if the flow detector (a small red or black marker) is moving.
**If the flow detector moves, then stops, then moves again, it is a good indication that your toilet valve is leaking or that there may be a very small leak.
**If the flow detector moves slowly, it is a good indication that you have a small leak.
**If the flow detector moves rapidly, it is a good indication that you have a break in your line – check for soggy areas in your yard or under your house.
**Once the repairs are made, call our Account Maintenance staff at 503-588-6099 for a possible leak adjustment on your bill.
