High water use bill options

Fort Worth Water takes your high water bill concerns seriously and is committed to water conservation and protecting our water supply. To further assist you, we have compiled the resources below.

What you can do

Bill assistance

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

If after taking these steps you did not find and 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 for either adjustment are listed below.

Water leak repair adjustment

To request a water leak repair adjustment, you must contact Customer Care (817-392-4477) within 60 days of the leak repair.

You will be asked to provide:

  • A copy of the repair receipt or paid in full invoice
  • Your Fort Worth Water account number
  • The property address where the repair took place
  • Range of high bill dates caused by the leak
  • The date and description of the repair

Send these documents to customer care by one of the following methods:

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