JEA’s High Water Usage Alert Program

Sometimes you can have a water leak at home and never even know it. The leak can damage property, cause very high bills and waste water, a precious resource.

That’s why JEA monitors consumption for customers daily and when a consistent and significant increase is seen, JEA can alert you. These alerts can help identify water leaks early, before you may even realize an issue exists.

Here’s how it works: an algorithm alerts us to a water leak and we alert you by email. Sometimes, if the leak appears really big, we’ll send a JEA specialist to your home so they can investigate the situation firsthand. If it’s needed to confirm the leak, the algorithm can produce a graph that shows your usage before the leak began. This way you can see the spike in your water usage caused by the leak.

One recent JEA water customer couldn’t thank us enough for this service. He’s elderly – lives on a fixed income – and forgot to turn off his hose when watering his backyard. The extra water usage was costly for him but not as costly as it would have been had the hose been left on for an entire month.

Right now, about half our water customers have the necessary meter to provide these advanced analytics. JEA is in the process of upgrading the other half of the meters over the next few years so all our water customers can benefit from this program.
