Fix a Leak Week March 20-26

Look for our banners around town as we join the Environmental Protection Agency in celebrating Fix A Leak Week March 20-26.  Inside, check faucets, showerheads and toilets for leaks.  Outside, check your garden hose and irrigation systems.   Water is one of our most precious commodities and any steps we can take today to fix any leaks or install water-efficient faucets, showerheads or toilets will only help us in the future. 

What is Fix a Leak Week?
Because minor water leaks account for more than 1 trillion gallons of water wasted each year in U.S. homes, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's WaterSense® program promotes Fix a Leak Week the third week of March each year. Fix a Leak Week is an annual reminder to Americans to check household plumbing fixtures and irrigation systems for leaksCheck your water bill each month to see how much water is being used in the home. The average family spends about $1,100 per year on water costs.  If your bill seems unusually high, take the time to check indoors as well as outdoors for any leaks.  Preventing and fixing leaks now will save you more in the future.
