Water Tips

Keep meter pits uncovered from grass, dirt, or any kind of debris in case we need to get in the pit.

Know where your inside shut off valve is located and exercise it occasionally.

If you notice discolored water, attempt to flush by running the cold water in the bathtub for up to 20 minutes before calling.  This will generally clear up any issue you may have.

If you have a leak or broken pipe in your house turn off your inside shut off valve first to see if this stops the flow of water.  If this does not stop the flow call 765-807-1100 to request a Customer Service Tech be sent to shut off water in the meter pit.

Lafayette Water Works is responsible for the service lines that run from the water main to the meter.  The service lines from the meter to the house are the customer's responsibility.

If you notice a foul smell coming from your hot water, but not from the cold, it is most likely a problem with your water heater.

If you just moved into your residence make sure your inside shut off valve is on before calling to set up service.
