Once again, MMWD is teaming up with WaterSense to promote Fix a Leak Week. “No problem,” you say—you fixed all your leaks during last year’s leak-fixing week. Well, fixing leaks is like a real live “whack-a-mole” game—you think you’re done and another one pops up someplace else.
Nationwide, more than 1 trillion gallons of water leak from U.S. homes each year. That’s why WaterSense reminds Americans to check their plumbing fixtures and irrigation systems each year during Fix a Leak Week. You can start with our “How to be a Leak Detective!” brochure. It will help you identify the most likely sources of leaks inside and outside your home.
For more information on what you can do to save water, please visit the WaterSense website. Launched in 2006, WaterSense is an EPA-sponsored partnership program that seeks to protect the future of our nation’s water supply by promoting water efficiency and enhancing the market for water-efficient products, programs and practices.
