Per West U's Code of Ordinances Sec. 86-37. (a)
Defects in the user's water system. A user may request a correction of a utility bill because of a loss of water through a defect in the user's water system. The adjustment may be made for a period not to exceed six consecutive monthly billing periods preceding the filing of a written application on a form furnished by the city. No adjustment will be authorized until the leak in the system is repaired. The adjustment will be calculated using average water usage plus one-half of the actual usage for the billing period(s) to be adjusted.
The adjustment will be calculated using average water usage, which will be the last (12) months prior to the leak, but not less than (3) months, plus one‐half of the actual usage in excess of the average for the billing periods(s) to be adjusted.
