Water Leaks

The Town of Carnduff water meters have the ability to detect leaks.  When we read meters each quarter, a report is created letting us know who has or has had a water leak.  If a leak is detected at your property, a note will be placed on your water bill.  

How does the system detect a leak?
The water meter system breaks a 24 hour period down into 15 minute intervals.  Throughout a 24 hour period, tehre are 96 of the 15 minutes intervals.  A leak is detected dependent on the number of intervals the meter has water running through it.
 
Type of Leak
Continuous Leak -- is when there is water running throught he mter in each of the 96 intervals.
Intermittent Leak -- is when there is wawter running through the meter for 50 to 95 of the 96 intervals.
Leak has stopped -- you previulsy had a leak but it has now stopped.
