If you have no water leak repair, Houston Public Works will review your water account for most beneficial water bill adjustment.

Unusually Large Bill (ULB)
Sec. 47-75, allows a single-family residential customer to receive one water/wastewater credit adjustment for one month during a 12 month period. The credit allowed is for unexplained usage over 200% of the average water consumption. Application must be received within six months of the high bill date.

Exceptional Circumstance Adjustment (ECA)
Sec. 47-75.1, allows a residential, not for profit or commercial customer to receive one water/wastewater credit adjustment for up to two bills within a 24 month period. A credit is allowed if the water usage is unexplained and over 200% percent of the average consumption. The credit may not exceed $10,000. Application must be received within six months of high bill date.

Leak Adjustment (LKA)
