Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
To the extent that your landlord refuses to repair the leak---presuming there is one and presuming that is on the house side of the water meter making the owner responsible for the leak---then the landlord and not you is responsible to pay for the cost of the wasted water.

Yes, he is responsible for paying for the wasted water.
And while I don't want to argue with you, but also, I don't want you overly concerned either. Water is sold by utilities by the acre-foot and not the cubic foot. An acre foot of water is equivalent to about 43,500 cubic feet. So the loss of a few hundred cubic feet of water will cost virtually nothing in the long run.
But, in the end, your landlord is legally responsible for any losses or expenses directly related to the failure of his water pipes.
