Leak Reimbursement

In the event of a reported and/or discovered leak by City staff on the consumer’s system, the consumer has fourteen (14) days to have the leak repaired or service may be shut off until repairs are made. Depending on the severity of the leak, shut-off timeframes may be adjusted.  

Utility Extension

If you are unable to make your utility payment by the end of the month, the city does offer an extension. The utility extension can be filled out and returned to the City so services are not interrupted. 

HomeServe-Service Line Warranties of America

The SLWA Service Line Warranty Program protects against repairs needed to pipes on homeowners’ property. Repairs to these pipes are not covered by basic homeowners’ insurance or by the City of Clearwater. If a customer’s service line needs repair, a simple call to the SLWA 24-hour hotline will dispatch a local, licensed contractor familiar with local code. There are no service fees or deductibles. 

 This program is voluntary for homeowners, provided at no cost to the City of Clearwater and no public funds are used to promote or administer the program.
