If you’re going away for an extended period of time, you may consider shutting off the water to your house - except where water is used for heating purposes.

  • Simply close the shut-off valve and open faucets to relieve pressure in the lines. If there is no shut-off valve, at least close the water supply to toilets, sinks, tubs and washing machines that often have individual shut-off valves.
  • If a plumbing problem occurs while away, these simple measures could protect your property from damage and high costs associated with a water leak.

To arrange for account payments during your extended absence, contact our Customer Service office between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
