Water Leak Repair Community Partner Grant

Water leaks can become costly quickly. When leaks are fixed and inefficient plumbing fixtures are replaced, customers are better able to manage their sewer/stormwater/water bill and potentially avoid home displacement. We provide free plumbing fixture repair and water efficiency improvements for customers who own their own homes and qualify based on their income. To meet growing need for this program, we are seeking community partners to serve as water leak repair coordinators.

Grant funding up to $165,000 is available starting July 1st, 2020
