If you had a leak w/o your knowledge at your house and your water bill ended up being really high for one month, would SAWS give you a break on your bill if you contact them?

This is why I do hand watering. Allowed any time, any day. Of course, I also don't water my lawn but every two or 3 weeks lol.

If you fax them a receipt for a plumbing repair that indicates a leak, yes, they will credit.

IIRC, they'll even extend the credit if you can show you did the repair yourself. It's been a long time ago, so I don't recall the details - but I had the main supply line burst between the meter and the house. Call SAWS and ask them - they're usually pretty helpful w/this stuff!

SAWS readily admits to targeting properties on the north side since that is where the most consumption is and people tend to have sprinkler system malfunctions. This is just plain wrong

What's wrong about focusing on the area with the biggest problem? Why waste resources patrolling an area of low water use, which suggests people are already following the restrictions. Seems perfectly logical to me and a reasonable use of resources.

And sprinkler malfunctions, though they do not reflect intentional waste of water, DO waste water, and often people do not realize what's happening until it's pointed out to them.

I'm not sure they said it was the biggest problem area, just the area with more consumption. But maybe, more consumption equates to breaking the rules. IDK.
