Notice: Change in Payment Procedure

At this time Cypress-Klein Utility District (the “Water District”) is not accepting electronic payments.

The company the Water District contracted with to handle electronic payments is no longer operating. The Water District is diligently working to contract with another company to handle electronic payments, and is hopeful that the new system will be online by the end of the month.

In the interim, all water bills must be paid by check, money order or cashier’s check. The Water District will post a notice when the new system is operational. Thank you for your patience.

Easy Steps to Find and Fix Common Household Leaks

  • Check your water meter before and after a two-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter changes at all, you probably have a leak.
  • Identify toilet leaks by placing a drop of food coloring in the toilet tank. You have a leak if any color shows up in the bowl after 10 minutes. Be sure to flush immediately after the test to avoid staining the tank.
  • Examine faucet gaskets and pipe fittings for any water on their surface.
  • Old or worn out toilet flappers are often the cause of toilet leaks. Fixing them can be an easy and inexpensive repair.
  • Some leaky shower heads can be fixed by ensuring there is a tight connection between the showered and the pipe stem, and by using pipe tape to secure it.
  • Check your in-ground irrigation system each spring before use to make sure it wasn’t damaged by frost or freezing. A leak that is 1/32nd of an inch can still waste up to 6,300 gallons of water per month.
  • If you can’t repair leaking fixtures, it might be time to replace them. Look for the WaterSense label when considering a new toilet, faucet, or shower head.
