Drip, Drip, Drip - Fix a Leak Week is March 20-26, 2023

As water conservation stewards of Greeley, the Water and Sewer Department encourages Greeley residents to participate in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) national Fix a Leak Week, March 20-26, 2023. The average household's leaks can account for nearly 10,000 gallons of water wasted yearly; that is the same amount of water it would take to wash 270 loads of laundry or around 10% of your water bill. Greeley residents can avoid many leaks with regular maintenance and by fixing leaks as soon as they are detected. 

“Water leak detection is very much like getting a checkup from the doctor,” said Dena Egenhoff, water conservation manager for the City of Greeley. “Do regular checkups on your water pipes and fixtures. Not only can finding a leak save you money, but it can prevent long-term damage to your property. Water leaks never get better—only worse.” 

Finding and fixing leaks is as simple as 1-2-3.
