WaterSense Celebrates 5th Annual Fix a Leak Week

Celebrate Fix a Leak Week this week with EPA’s WaterSense program by checking winter water bills and fixtures for water waste, twisting and tightening pipe and hose connections, and considering replacing broken or inefficient fixtures with WaterSense-labeled models. One in every 10 homes has a leak that is wasting at least 90 gallons of water per day. By taking these simple steps, households can save more than 10,000 galls of water per year and as much as 10 percent on utility bills.
