Summer is officially here and in Texas, that means lots of hot, dry days. We’re spending more and more time at the pool, playing in the sprinkler and running our irrigation systems to keep the yards in top shape. This also means higher water bills are on their way. If you want to get ahead of the higher bills, the City of Southlake’s “Eye on Water” tool is just what you need to manage your household’s water consumption by offering you instant access to your real-time water usage.
Not sure how “Eye on Water” can help? Think about it as a leak detection tool that you can use to monitor your water consumption for anomalies or spikes in usage when there should be none, identifying potential leaks both inside and outside of your home.
Irrigation systems get a big work out during the hot summer months. Using “Eye on Water” can help you be sure the irrigation system is working correctly. If you’ve noticed your consumption has gone up a lot more you expected, that could mean a leak in the irrigation. Just a tiny leak can waste a lot of water.
“Eye on Water” can also help you spot leaks inside your home. Just like a leak in the irrigation system, a leak inside can have a large impact on your water consumption. If you notice the numbers look off, contact us to get a free leak detection kit.
Understanding and taking control of your water usage is just a finger touch away. Start by registering online at https://southlaketx.eyeonwater.com/signup and activating your account. Then download the app and you’re on your way!

The City of Southlake Water Utilities department identified a water leak at one of its pump stations Monday morning. Emergency crews are working to make repairs as quickly as possible.
Some customers may experience less water pressure during this time. All Southlake Water Utilities customers are asked for their cooperation to help conserve water Citywide. Additionally, all customers are asked to refrain from operating their irrigation systems until the repair has been completed. Repairs are expected to last several days.
