- To request emergency water turn-off or to report a water meter leak, water main break, fire hydrant leak or clogged or overflowing wastewater main, call the numbers above. An operator will be dispatched immediately. There is no charge for these services.
- No one but an authorized agent may turn your water on or off at the water meter. This is to prevent any damage to the water meter and/or service line. Some houses have gate valves that can be accessed by the resident when necessary. If you are not sure if you have a gate valve, we will help you locate it.
- 8-INCH WATER LINE REPLACEMENT: An existing 8" cast iron water line will be replaced with an 8" PVC line, dramatically decreasing the potential for a leak in this section of pipe, improving the overall performance of Addison's water distribution system.
- 1.5 MILLION GALLON ELEVATED WATER STORAGE RESERVOIR: Identified in the Addison Water Distribution System Study (2006), this project includes the construction of a 1.5 million gallon Elevated Water Storage Reservoir to satisfy the remainder of Addison's elevated storage needs.
