TCWD - Leak Forgiveness Program

The Turtle Cove Water Department has updated our Leak Forgiveness Policy to help our customers deal with expensive, unexpected plumbing issues. If you experience a leak in your plumbing (from your water meter to and including your home), you can apply for a water bill adjustment, based on the nature of the incident. 

If you will fill out the electronic form below, it will be submitted to our water department personnel for consideration. For more details, please refer to the documentation on this page: "TCWD Leak Forgiveness Policy".

TCWD - Leak Forgiveness Consideration form

  • Submitting this form will begin the process to consider your incident for possible water bill modification. Submission of this form does not assure you of getting an adjustment to your water bill due to a leak condition.

    TCWD Leak Forgiveness Policy

    Our TCWD Leak Forgiveness Policy provides for review of incidents of usage over 15,000 gallons in a single reading period. We do limit one leak adjustment per leak event.

    Additional incidents under that amount will be handled on an individual basis and qualifying will be dependent on management ruling. 

    If your incident is approved, your monthly bill will be adjusted and the office staff will inform you of your new bill amount. You may also set up payment arrangements for any amount more than you are able to pay in one billing cycle.

    All leak adjustments are done at the discretion of management. They are a courtsey, not a right.

    Below is a partial list of reasons for approval and denial of water bill offsets. All other reasons will be considered, on an individual basis, by water department personnel.


    • Service leak between meter and home
    • Slab leaks
    • Broken pipes


    • Pool filling
    • Outdoor hose left on
    • Irrigation system leaks
