Every Drop Counts

More than 1 trillion gallons of water are wasted in U.S. homes each year from easy-to-fix leaks. That’s why Fulton County Public Works is celebrating U.S. EPA WaterSense Fix a Leak Week, March 19-25, 2018.      

Sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) WaterSense® program, Fix-a-Leak Week is an opportunity to improve the water efficiency of your home by finding and fixing leaks. In the average home, household leaks waste more than 10,000 gallons of water each year. That’s the amount of water needed to wash 270 loads of laundry!

You can participate in Fix a Leak Week by joining us for an upcoming event, following us on Facebook and Twitter, or using this handy Leak Detection Checklist to find and fix leaks on your own at home.   If you find one, post a photo of it on your social media with the hashtag #IFixLeaks to encourage others!

Fixing many common household leaks is as easy as Check-Twist-Replace:

  • Check for dripping faucets and leaky toilets
  • Twist faucets and pipe connections to tighten
  • Replace old fixtures with WaterSense labeled models

This video from WaterSense can show you how!
