Are you going away on holiday?

Did you know that you can turn the water off while you’re away on holiday? This may prevent any unexpected water usage from a leak in your water service or internal plumbing fixtures. First check your household appliances to ensure that it is safe to turn the water off. Then turn the water off at the stop valve on the meter.
