The City of Farmington Hills provides a water shutoff service to residents who are on vacation or away for an extended period. For a $150 fee, your water service can be shut off at the stopbox (the valve the City has installed to access water service) and then turned back on upon request. This will save you money and prevent costly repairs:
- If your water service is off for at least three months, the normal quarterly minimum charge will be waived.
- Turning off water service will help prevent freezing of your internal plumbing and meter, which could cause significant water damage to your home.
To schedule an appointment to shut off your water, call the Oakland County Water Resources Commissioner’s Office at (248) 858-1110.
