A higher than usual water bill is usually an indication of a leak. Most of the time the leak can not be seen or heard.
The first thing that should be done is to check the toilet by putting food coloring in the tank and letting the water sit for 30 minutes without flushing.

Once everything has been checked and there aren't any problems then contact the Town of Warrenton office at (540) 347-2678. The next step is for an employee to come out and check the water lines going to your house for any leaks.
If you do not receive your water bill in the mail, please contact the Town of Warrenton utility billing office at (540) 347-2678. Town of Warrenton Water Bills are always due on the 20th of the month. If the 20th falls on a weekend or holiday, bills are due the next business day.
