Fix a Leak Week March 15 – 21

Did you know that an American home can waste, on average, more than 10,000 gallons of water every year due to running toilets, dripping faucets, and other household leaks? That’s enough water to fill a backyard swimming pool.

The Saving Water Partnership, along with the Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program are promoting “Fix a Leak Week” from March 15 to 21 to remind Americans to check their plumbing fixtures, outdoor faucets, and irrigation systems for leaks.
