You can monitor your use and get alerts that let you know if your water use is high. Using technology, we can monitor water use across our service area 24/7/365. The District believes in using technology to help monitor leaks and save money. We offer a free notification service called AquaHawk. To learn more and sign-up visit our Monitor Your Usage page.
