High Water Bills?
Check for running toilets and water softeners. They are the primary cause for excess water usage. Check the digital read on the face of your inside water meter. If the number is changing, water is being used.
Rusty Water?
It is not uncommon to have rusty water when hydrant flushing occurs. Running water for 15-20 minutes will help clear your line. Record your beginning and ending water meter numbers,  you can call them into City Hall for a credit on your water bill.
