Yep, that small amount could save you. But I'm not sure if they actually do anything when they check. So you might have to hire a plumber anyways.
The water company will read your meter, and see if the leak indicator is turning. You can do this yourself for free.

Look at your meter and check the meter reading. If you see numbers higher than your last bill then your meter was not overread. Read your meter every day for a week. Write it down and see how much water you are using. Turn all water off and check your leak indicator on the meter. If the leak indicator is turning, find & fix the leak. Check the condition of your toilet flappers, make sure your float is working properly. Make sure your chain is not hanging up when you flush.

If you still can't find your problem, call a plumber.

Are you actually requesting someone to take care of their own problem when they can complain enough to the city counsel so they will get someone to work on it, at no charge, using our tax dollars? You know if this happened in white people's neighborhoods that honky wouldn't have to fix it. You never see a honour fixing their own problem. It said so in the paper.

Since my husband did most of the work himself, we spent $40,000 to rennovate our house. Keep in mind we owned the house with no mortgage. On March 1 2012 EWSC was clearing a clog in the main pipes. They ended up pushing the "clog" straight into my newly rennovated home. They estimated 9,000 gallons of black sewage throughout the house. Then they insisted that they were not responsible for it. The EPA from little rock did some testing and the results came back positive for e.coli. After 2 months of going back and forth, now the water co is offereing us $46,000 to buy us out of the house. That is a joke!!! We spent that much just rennovating it. This house has new sheet rock walls, ceramic tile floors, laminate hardwood floors, sub-floors, CHA, roof, energy efficient windows,countertops, cabinets, sinks, toilets, bathtub, showers, vanities, light fixtures, water heater, doors, paint, EVERYTHING!!! The only thing old is the frame!!$46,000 is not gonna buy us a home like what we had. Furthermore that would only be a downpayment on another house which means we would have a mortgage!!! This is flat out wrong!! I will keep the rest of my comments to myself. Im sure you all have been reading about this in the paper. It had been on the front page 4 times in the last 2 months.

I have a small office in town that I use from time to time, but my business requires me to be out of town a lot. There are some months where I don't even use the water there and on those months my bill is always $22.50
Why is it that much when no water/service was being used?

You pay that much for having a meter and water available whether you use any water or not.

If you wouldn't have screwed up your own sewer line, you wouldn't have to show your trashy side and cry on Topix begging for city money. Pretty pathetic.

Right, but isn't that a bit steep? not necessarily for me, but think of all the elderly people here.

You probably didn't have sewer added to your bill either which is what makes the bill higher.

I've lived in the city for some time now. I remember about 10 years ago when we were billed every two months. It was even $60 for two months then.

Norphlet water has went to over 69.00 since first of the year, guess they felt like catching up to the big city. Either way it's still too steep for folks on a fixed income.

Didn't turn on Wimberly till around 6:30 this morning. He was ranting, yelling, screaming at the city council, repeatedly calling them eight cowards and spineless jelly fish for not standing up to and dissolving El Dorado Water Utilities. He was very disappointed that no one was calling in to agree with him. I have no idea of the number range of listeners. With the frequent technical problems of dead air ( some of that is probably operator error ) music and other format stations bleeding in, too low sound volume of callers and others, Wilfred McKinney may be rolling in his grave as is his inlaw Rachel. When he ran KELD as 1400 AM, I don't remember these problems.

There you have it folks, an informative update from a highly educated homosexual that lives on FoodStamps, Welfare and Govt. Housing. His name is 'typical', he can't work, but he can stay on Topix 24/7 while he bleeds our tax dollars dry. A truly useless POS.

Why support a spineless coward that has the audacity to chastize his neighbors publicly without any merit? This type of bs is what's wrong in national politics and has the "trickle down effect" to the local level. That is why nobody who could be beneficial to our future will run. Why waste your time?

Forgot. Because they called a meeting and signed off on the discharge line to the river contract less than two working days following Mason's address to the council, Wimberley believes there must be some deep, dark secret the water Nazis are trying to conceal from the public. This feeds in to my earlier posts wondering why El Dorado Water Utilities is incorporated, the stock, and whether there may be a China Town back story.

I have lived in El Dorado all my life and I think that makes me qualified to agree with the "El Dorado sux" comment. It does and it doesn't have too. My main complaint about the water utilities is the dinosaur age they live in. There is no web site. How weird. They have no way to pay online. Even stranger. My Mother is house bound. I can pay all her bills online. Very convenient. Not the water bill. She told me that they will accept a electronic transfer but only after you supply tons of personal information that, to her, was above and beyond reasonable. Since she has other electronic transfers from her checking I can only assume that the water company really does make it a little more difficult. There has always been a "attitude" problem with this segment of the City.
I worked as a fireman for several years and there was never a good working relationship between the water company and the fire department. It may have changed but, I seriously doubt it. The water utilities has always had a attitude of "if you don't like us, go with the other company" mentality.
