Checking for Leaks
Service Line / Street Leaks
West Valley Water District is responsible for what is called the street side of the water meter. This includes all water mains in the street and continues through the District's distribution system.
If you notice a water leak in the street or in the area of your water meter, call Customer Service
at (909) 875-1804 to report it.
Checking for Invisible or Slow Leaks
To check for invisible or slow leaks, follow these steps:
- Turn off all water taps inside and outside your home.
- Record the meter reading and return in two to three hours to check for movement. If the meter reading has changed, you may have a leak.
- Many meters have a small red or black triangle or circle on the meter face, designed to detect even small leaks. If this triangle or round dial is moving when you have all water off inside and outside your home, you may have a leak.
- Turn on sprinklers and check for broken sprinkler heads.
