Each person should familiarize theirself with the location of the household's shutoff valves. Usually a building will have a main shutoff where the water first enters the premises. This could be immediately inside a basement or crawl space. In addition, each faucet should have a shutoff valve located in the underneath cabinet. Knowing the location of these valves will help you turn water off quickly, thereby saving damage to your home and eliminating a service charge.
If you have an after-hour emergency that involves our water lines, you may contact the Sheriff's Department at 783-2234. They will contact our personnel. An emergency would be considered a broken water line or a sudden water outage. A service charge may apply. Please DO NOT call 911 for water related emergencies and only contact the Sheriff's Dept for a true emergency.
