Make Every Drop Count!

By Lindsay Wochnick

In an average home, 22 gallons of water are lost to leakage each day – that’s more than $114 per year on your sewer, stormwater, and water bill.

The most common culprits are leaking toilets or dripping faucets. If your water usage is higher than usual or averages more than eight CCF per person every three months (eight CCF equates to 5,984 gallons of water), you may have a leak.

All water services in Portland are metered. Meter readings determine the water and sewer charges on your quarterly bill. Reading your meter is a great way to detect a leak if you have one.

Saving Water Makes Sense!

Check out the Portland Water Bureau's Yes! You Can Find a Water Leak! brochure for ways to discover leaks and simple repair actions.
