2. Do I need to be at home when service man comes out to turn water on?

Generally speaking you need not be home.  You do have the option of making an appointment if you suspect problems.  Some customers choose to turn their main valve off which prevents a fixture, which may have been left on, from running water uncontrollably. When service is restored, turning off the main valve will avoid the Water District in Raytown, MO making a second trip at which your presence will be required.

3. Is sewer billed separately?

Yes, sewer is separately billed.  The sewer bill is based on water department data from your "winter average" of water consumption, but is billed and collected by the City of Raytown.  Failure to pay your sewer bill will result in disconnection of your water service.

4. Where do I look for leaks?

The most common household leak occurs in a toilet.  They can also occur in a number of other places within the home.  Some of these include but are not limited to water heaters, toilet tank overflow pipes, ice makers, humidifiers and outside faucets accidentally left on.  The occasional necessary jiggle of the toilet flush lever is an often overlooked household leak.
