You can find some typical cost info for this in the Home > Plumbing link in Browse Projects, at lower left - for shallow pipe burial area like yours, probably in the $300-500 range (not including any repair to lawn or sidewalk/drive or such), assuming interference with the street is not involved.

Note - generally the utility responsibility for the piping ends at the curb or pit box - the shutoff valve commonly a few feet on your side of the sidewalk or curb. In most of Chandler it appears (from a web search) that their responsibility ends with (and includes) the water meter, usually in a roughly 1x2 foot in-ground and at-grade concrete or plastic box. If real close to the street, and especially if one their side of the meter (which might be combined with a shutoff valve), it might be their responsibility - so check on that if that is a possibility.

Plumbing is the normal Search the List categogry for this type of work.

Note that is the leak is one your side of the meter (so you have been paying for more water usage) many water utilities will credit back some or all of the increase of usage over normal if you present an invoice showing a leak was found and repaired - some require a statement on the invoice that a meter check shows there is now no measureable leakage on the house side of the meter (done by checking meter for movement when everything is off in the house). This may mean that if you have a "running" toilet or noticeably dripping faucet that it will have to be repaired too for the plumber to be able to do that certification.
