Water Emergencies

The customer's responsibility for water and pipes begins at the meter. Many problems reported are plumbing problems, not water emergencies, and should be addressed by a plumber.

The following are examples of water/sewer emergencies:

You see a lot of flowing water where there normally is none.

  • If water is flowing and collecting where it shouldn't be, notify your service area maintenance contractor, Jacobs, by calling 928-759-9062 during the day or after hours. Before calling, try to determine where the water is coming from so you can let Jacobs know the details of the problem.
