Fix a Leak Week – March 20-26

FIX A LEAK WEEKFix a Leak Week is a national campaign by the EPA WaterSense program to highlight how to find and fix home plumbing leaks. The Consortium’s goal during the week of March 20 is to give your customers the motivation and resources to find and fix leaks at home. 

Find & Fix Leaks at Home 

Finding and fixing leaks at home is a quick and easy way to save water and money. Household leaks waste more than one trillion gallons of water nationwide each year, from visible faucet drips to silent toilet leaks. Get in the habit of checking your whole house for leaks at least twice a year. If you already check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors twice annually, add this to your list! In less than half an hour, you can do your part to help save water at home. If we all do our part to use water wisely at home throughout the Portland metropolitan region, together we can make a real difference. 

Calling all Junior Leak Detectives!
