Southwest Fannin SUD


It has come to our attention that some builders, plumbers, or homeowners are removing the hand valve on the customer’s side of the meter. Southwest Fannin S.U.D. requires a working cutoff valve on the customer’s side of the meter. This valve is to be placed at the meter to turn the meter off if necessary. The customer is not permitted to use the District’s cutoff valve to turn the meter off. The customer cutoff valve is the responsibility of the customer to maintain. Please call the office with any questions concerning this requirement.

Important considerations for
Water Conservation

There are a number of ways to conserve water
and they all start with you.

Just by turning off the tap while you brush your teeth in the morning and before bedtime, you can save up to 8 gallons of water! That adds up to more than 200 gallons a month.

The same is true when you wash dishes. Turn off the tap! Scrape your dirty dishes into the trash - then put them in the dishwasher. Then only run your dishwasher when you have a full load!


Install covers on pools and spas to cut the evaporation by 90% and check form leaks around your pumps. If you have an automatic refilling device, check your pool periodically for leaks also.


If your toilet has a leak, you could be wasting as much as 30 to 500 gallons of water per day. Even a small leak can waste thousands of gallons a month!

Try this experiment: test for leaks by placing a drop of food coloring in the toilet tank. If the color shows up in the bowl without flushing, you have a leak! (Flush as soon as test is done, since food coloring may stain the tank.)

Monitor your water bill for unusually high use. Your bill and water meter are tools that can help you discover leaks. We're more likely to notice leaks indoors, but don't forget to check outdoor faucets, sprinklers and hoses for leaks!
When you save water, you save money on your utility bills too.
Saving water is easy for everyone to do.
