|HOUSTON – Houston Public Works is teaming up with the cities of Dallas, Fort Worth, Round Rock, and the Tarrant County Regional Water District to spread awareness about the importance of fixing common water leaks in homes. More than a trillion gallons of water get wasted every year in homes across the country and 10 percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons of water or more per day. Fixing the most common water leaks can save customers about 10 percent on their water bills. Houston and the cities listed above will host FREE virtual events to inform water customers about how to find and fix common water leaks as part of the Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense campaign, Fix-A-Leak Week.
The first virtual event on March 15 at 6 p.m. will cover indoor plumbing leaks with tips and tricks to help customers save water and save money all year long. The workshop will include video clips, presentations, along with time for participants to ask questions. The second virtual event on March 17 at 6 p.m. will cover outdoor/irrigation plumbing leaks. Be sure to register to receive the links to each event.
