Free Webinar: How to Find and Fix Household Leaks

Free Webinar: How to Find and Fix Household Leaks

The City’s Department of Utilities is inviting residents to a free webinar on March 21 that will help them find and fix leaks in and around their homes.

This webinar will cover common household leaks and the simple steps you can take to repair them.

Staff will also show people how to set leak alerts and track how much water they are using online.

People can register online for the webinar, which is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m.

The webinar is part of “Fix a Leak Week” from March 18 to 24, which is hosted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense program.

According to WaterSense, leaks can cause the average household to waste nearly 10,000 gallons of water each year, and fixing simple leaks can help homeowners save about 10 percent on their water bills.
