City of Denton water customers who have experienced high bills due to a water leak may be eligible for a partial billing adjustment (reduction) of excess charges. If a customer has experienced any loss of billed water due to a failure of a plumbed line or fixture, they may be eligible for a partial billing adjustment of up to 100,000 gallons of excess usage. Leaks should be repaired within one month of detection and customers must apply within 60 days after the repair was made. See the Water and Sewer Leak Adjustment Program Flyer for program specifics and eligibility requirements, or call (940) 349-8700 to speak with a Customer Service Representative. Submit a request for a leak adjustment.

Critical Care Program
Residential accounts whose home includes a permanent resident with a physician diagnosis of dependency on an electric powered medical device to sustain life or who requires electric heating or cooling to prevent the impairment of a major life function through a significant deterioration or exacerbation of the person’s medical condition may qualify for inclusion in our Critical Care program.
In the event of payment issues, program participants receive extra measures of contact to attempt to resolve any account issues prior to interruption of service.
Designation as a chronic condition or critical care residential customer does not relieve a customer of the obligation to pay for electric services, and service may be disconnected for failure to pay. Chronic condition or critical care residential customer status does not guarantee an uninterrupted, regular, or continuous power supply. If electricity is a necessity, customers must make other arrangements for on-site back-up capabilities or other alternatives in the event of loss of electric service.
Please be aware that prepaid service accounts cannot participate in the program as interruption and restoration of services are automated.
