Shutting off your water can avoid costly repairs

♦If you are planning to leave for more than a few days it is a good idea to shut your water off.

How?

Per Cricket Taylor, City of Wilsonville, Utility Billing Specialist

A customer can contact the City to have their water service turned off at the street prior to starting the process of properly winterizing their home. If the customer would like the City to turn the water off, they  will need to fill out a temporary stop service form. There is a $35.00 fee for this service and the form is located on the City’s website. The monthly utility bills will be reduced to only base fees until the service is restored.

 

All customers should also take extra care when turning on an irrigation system for the first time after the winter months. An outdoor watering system with 60 pounds of pressure and a leak 1/32 of an inch in diameter, about the thickness of a dime, could result in an extra two units of water consumed in approximately one week.

 Normally, I would include the form or at least the website link, but I am on the East Coast and this is not an option.
