If you have an emergency leak and need your water turned off during the daytime, please contact City Hall at 432-1230

If your emergency leak happens after hours, please contact the Police Department at 432-1201 and they will contact the on-call water system operator to assist you. 

Tip: Turning your water off before going away on a long trip is a wise way to prevent a flood in case a pipe inside your house should break while you’re away.
