Re: Outdoor Water Leak
It might be in your best interest to make a call to your local water untility to answer those specifics.
In some areas the water utility is responcible for the line to the house and others the responcibility is on the homeowner from the house to the street.... depends where the meter is as well.
If the line outside the home does have a leak the water supply will need shutoff for repair of the line.
The water utility may also be the only ones to shut the water off at the distribution shutoff valve .... depends .... some places allow plumbers to have their own key for the shutoff.
They would also be able to locate the line and tell you how far down it likely is.
Hope this helps.
