All water that passes through the meter shall be charged for, whether used or wasted or lost by leakage, except that the Director of Finance and Records may make such abatement as seems to him/her right and proper in the case of a leak, when it does not appear that the owner or user could be reasonably expected to know of the leak, or to have had fair chance to stop such leak. Such reduction shall not exceed one-half of the excess bill except as otherwise determined by the Director of Finance and Records.
