City Utilities staff on March 21 are hosting a webinar to help people learn about how to find water leaks in their homes and how to fix them.
“Leaks can damage the inside and outside of your home, wash out your landscape, or even cause damage to your neighbor’s property,” said William Granger, water conservation coordinator with the City. “And spring is a great time to get them fixed.”
People can register for the online webinar, which will be recorded and last from noon to 1 p.m.
“We’re also asking people to record their number of leaks and tell us at the webinar how many they found,” said Granger. “We call it the ’10-minute challenge.’”
According to the EPA, water leaks can cause the average American home to waste more than 10,000 gallons of water annually or the amount of water needed to wash 270 loads of laundry.
