If you found a leak and had the leak repaired, you may request a water leak repair adjustment form.

If after taking steps to check for leaks and you did not find or repair a leak and still feel your bill is too high, you may submit an Undefined High Water Use Bill Adjustment Application.

The requirements to qualify an adjustment are listed below.

Water leak repair adjustment

A hidden water leak, beyond the customer's control, may qualify for a leak adjustment.

To be eligible for a water leak adjustment, the customer must provide the following within 60 days of repairing the leak:

1. A copy of the repair receipt or paid in full invoice

2. Water account number

3. The property address where the repair took place

4. The range of high bill dates caused by the leak

5. The date and description of the repair

For leaks that have existed longer than 60 days, adjustments will only be made for the 60 days immediately prior to the repair. 

If eligible, up to two consecutive billing periods affected by the leak may receive an adjustment equal to 50 percent of the difference above the average water use. (This is determined by using the six-months usage prior to the leak or prior years' relevant use for seasonality.) The adjustment is applied as a credit to the customer's account. Upon receiving the adjustment, the account is ineligible for another water leak repair bill adjustment for the next 12 months.

To request a water leak repair adjustment, you must contact the Utilities Department at (254) 662-1415 within 60 days of the leak repair.

Send these documents to utilities by one of the following methods:

  • Email: utilities@robinsontexas.org
  • Fax: (254) 662-1035 Attn: Water Bill Adjustment
  • Mail: City of Robinson Utilities Department
    Attn: Water Bill Adjustment
    111 W. Lyndale
    Robinson, TX 76706

Accounts are not eligible for an adjustment if they received a leak repair adjustment in the past 12 months.
