Credit Calculation Methodology: Determine the average monthly consumption over the twelve (12) month period,
immediately preceding the leak (or period of time as an account holder, if less than 12 months). Subtract the average
monthly consumption from the consumption in dispute. Credit the customer fifty percent (50%) of the difference
between the average consumption and the consumption in dispute. (Water and sewer).
In consideration for receiving utility service from The City of Elyria at the above location, I hereby acknowledge responsibility for payment of
service billings. I will continue to make payments on my utility account until a possible leak credit is determined. All utility accounts are billed and
payment by the indicated due date is required to prevent interruption of service. You are responsible for utility service until your account is closed.
___ I understand that The City of Elyria is not responsible for water damage to this property or its contents. In consideration for having utility
service initiated/ restored at the above address, I agree to ensure that all water service facilities (sink and tub faucet/ inside and outside, toilets, etc.)
are turned off: or that the responsible account holder or designee will be present to check for leakage. We recommend that you turn off your private
shut off valve, if applicable.
Once a water leak credit amount has been determined, I understand that I will be required to have a General Release Form signed and notarized. This
Form will be mailed to me at the above address. No credit will be applied to an account without the Form being returned to EPU.
