Water Consumption Alert System
Undetected water leaks can lead to a costly increase in your utility bill.  The Water Consumption Alert System provides a means to notify utility customers of a spike in water usage.  Participation is voluntary.  Initially, the program prompts customers to register with the program.  Once registered, customers are able to manage and edit contact information and daily thresholds established.   Based on a 48 hour consumption threshold set for your account, an email notification is generated if the number of gallons used has been exceeded.  For assistance in setting up your account or other questions, please contact customer service at (515)867-5199.

This service is provided as a convenience to utility customers of the City of Clive.  Although the City of Clive has made every effort to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the system, the City of Clive cannot make any warranties or guarantees.  In no event shall the City of Clive be liable for damages of any kind, including special, incidental, indirect or consequential damages, or arising out of or in connection with the use of the service.
