Water use often increases in the summer months. This increase is usually the result of additional water used to maintain lawns and keep plants alive in the hot, dry environment. Unfortunately, increased water use is not always planned. Peoria meters staff members work diligently to review water use data from monthly meter reads and call attention to higher than normal water use. If there is a sign of a potential leak, a representative will contact the customer to report the findings. For more information, call 623-773-7160 to speak to a City of Peoria customer service representative.
